In the summer of 1943, the country of Finland face certain annihilation from Russia, their ageless arch-enemy. The overmatched Finns are doomed and only a miracle can save their race. A telephone conversation in Stockholm, Sweden, between two women, Maja Sandler, the wife of Sweden's Foreign Minister, and Hana Rudh, Director of the philanthropic Bremmer Foundation, creates a plan for neutral Sweden to temporarily adopt Finland's children until the war's end. Within three months, an operation called Finska Krigsbarn becomes the greatest exodus of children in recorded history. Painstakingly created from personal accounts and local research, SUNPATH is more than a novel; it is a vicarious trip into a harrowing period of human history. Follow the adventures of a remarkable ten-year old child whose tenacity for life describes the best of the human spirit and proves that love, in spite of war, exists among all people. SUNPATH is an uplifting saga told within the spectacular landscape of northern Sweden. Michael Maryk lived in Sweden and interviewed numerous survivors of this period while visiting the sites described in his book. He has been a hairstylist, actor, novelist and screenwriter. Originally from Princeton, New Jersey, Maryk now lives with his wife in Bellingham, Washington.
