Feature title: Vändra, by Enn Raudsepp

Ordinary people who lived through the German and Soviet Red Army occupations were faced with many choices: cooperate with the Soviets, assist the Germans, or fight both occupiers with the hope of regaining freedom for Estonia. In this cauldron lived Karl Kingsepp, the son of poor tenant farmers, initially attracted to the church as a means to escape a bleak future, but then drawn into the fighting that raged around him. Through all those years, while scrambling to stay alive and to protect his family, he also had to deal with the problems of his parishioners, who ran the gamut from hardworking farmers to star-crossed lovers and fanatical nationalists. In the end he had to decide whether to stay in Estonia or to flee to the West on board a German ship bound for Danzig. This is the story of one man’s decision, a decision that affected many people and had great ramifications for the future. Beautifully written with empathy and understanding by Enn Raudsepp who has first-person understanding of the events in the novel. Compelling and unforgettable reading.
