Estonian literature: The Last Train From Estonia

It was my birthday recently and one of the gifts I received was 'The Last Train From Estonia' by Jaak Jurison. I enjoy reading Estonian literature, both fact and fiction, and pleased with the ever expanding list of titles in my collection. Jaan Kross is one of my favourite Estonian authors and I have been eagerly awaiting the release of A Book of Falsehoods : Between Three Plagues Volume 3 (translated into English) but the release date keeps getting delayed. I will have to wait until August 2022 to read it.

I'm looking forward to reading The Last Train From Estonia. The story is sure to resonate and no doubt make me think of my own family's plight during those dark years in Estonian history.
