Read full description of the books The Englishman: Can Love Go the Distance?:
A stylish 1980s Nordic love story - based on true events. When a young Finnish student Kaisa is invited to the British Embassy cocktail party in Helsinki to celebrate a Royal Navy visit to Finland, she's not looking for romance. After all, her future has been carefully planned: she's to complete her degree, marry her respectable, well-to-do Finnish fiance Matti, and live happily ever after. Enter the dashing Peter, a newly qualified navy officer. Like a moth to a flame, Kaisa falls head over heels in love with the handsome Englishman. The young lovers steal passionate kisses in the chilly Esplanade Park and promise to meet again. Kaisa and Peter embark on a long-distance relationship, but at the height of the Cold War, while the Englishman chases Russian submarines, Kaisa is stuck in Finland, a country friendly with the Soviet Union. Kaisa lives for the Englishman's passionate letters and infrequent long-distance phone calls, but her jealous ex-fiance doesn't want to let go, and her old-fashioned father hates foreigners. Can Kaisa trust the gregarious Englishman? Wouldn't she be better off going back to her faithful fiance? While Kaisa struggles to keep up faith in the relationship, a war breaks out in the faraway Falkland Islands... Can the love between Kaisa and the Englishman last and go the distance? This 'Will they, won't they?' -tale of long-distance love is based on true events and attracted thousands of readers when first published as a series of posts on Helena's blog.
