9780692579220: For Love And Country

A gripping, epic love story. The American Dream. Who hasn’t had it? Who hasn’t wished for it? As WWII dawns and America and the world brace for the bloodiest conflict ever known, Fate arranges a chance meeting in Chicago between two young Finnish immigrants, enshrouding them in a fog of love and passion as they struggle to make a better life for themselves in the Land of Opportunity. Toivo is a great artist, a painter many years ahead of his time—an old soul in a young man’s body. Kerttu is a smart and courageous young woman with dreams of dancing on Broadway. But just as they have the American Dream within their grasp, circumstances beyond their control thrust the two lovers into a war that changed the course of history—the Finnish-Russian Winter War of 1939-40. A staunch pacifist Toivo must fight for the land he had scorned, forcing him to confront deep-seated and conflicting emotions, while Kerttu, penniless and stranded in New York, has to dance in a burlesque house on Lower Broadway, until—— Fate once again intervenes...

About the Author:

An award-winning actor, writer, producer and director, Bo Svenson has during his career worked with over one hundred Academy Award winners and/or nominees. Born in Sweden, he emigrated to the US as a teenager and right away decided to serve his new country with six years in the U.S. Marines. After an honorable discharge, he was spotted in Miami by James Hammerstein Jr. and cast in a revival of South Pacific. Curious to find out if acting was for him, he headed to New York where he was discovered while headlining a play and cast in a starring role in a TV series pilot. Having captured audiences’ attention while co-starring on Here Come the Brides, guest starring roles followed. His role as the Creature in the three-hour TV movie Mary Shelley’s Original Frankenstein brought him great acclaim and led to a starring role in Maurie and the co-starring role with Robert Redford in The Great Waldo Pepper. Major starring roles followed: Sheriff Buford Pusser in two Walking Tall films and the Walking Tall TV series; crazed football player Jo Bob in North Dallas Forty; heroic airline pilot Captain Campbell in The Delta Force; jealous bar-owner Roy Jennings in Clint Eastwood’s Heartbreak Ridge; and cold-blooded killer Ivan in Magnum, P.I. In addition to the Russian mob boss Vadim in Icarus, he recently portrayed Reverend Harmony in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill and The Colonel in Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. He was the only actor of the original The Inglorious Bastards cast included by Tarantino in his homage to that movie, one of his all-time favorite. An accomplished athlete, he has competed in world championships, Olympic selections and/or international competition in yachting, ice hockey, NASCAR, and judo. A holder of black belts in judo, karate, and aikido, he has been inducted into the Martial Arts Masters Hall of Fame. He retired from judo competition after winning a silver in the 2009 USA Judo National Championships, a bronze in the 2013 World Masters Judo Championships, and a gold in the 2013 USJA Winter Nationals. He is president and CEO of MagicQuest Entertainment, a California corporation engaged in international motion picture and television development, production, and branded advertainment, and also provides consulting service to actors and writers. A prolific writer, he has several screenplays in development and pre-production. For "Love and Country" is his first novel.
