  • This is the story of a man looking for his way. New York did not satisfy his soul, so he moved to Estonia, with his crazy wife, a kid, and six suitcases. Within 24 hours he found a home and had to learn how to make a fire. It did not satisfy his soul for long. Soon he had a house with four furnaces, and was making fires around the clock. His crazy Estonian wife started a publishing house that turned out well. Too well. He decided to become an academic. It did not satisfy him for long, but at least he met a real elf who inspired him. Then he decided to dabble in diplomacy. It did not feel right either. And he got depressed. There were too many drunks and neo-Nazis in this country, not to mention all the mice, lice, and ice. Writing books – bestsellers! – about those problems seemed to satisfy his soul. He thought he had found his niche, as a writer in a small town teeming with cafes and characters. Then, overnight, it all collapsed. The action in Justin Petrone ́s new book takes place mostly in two Estonian towns, folksy Viljandi and teacherly Tartu. It takes place from the year 2007 (the Bronze Soldier riots) until 2013 (when Petrone left Estonia amid a national scandal).

  • Oli 2003. aasta. Põhjamaa serval pesitsevas väikeses Eestis puhusid muutuste tuuled: tuli otsustada, kas liituda Euroopa rahvastega. Kohale oli jõudnud ka tarbimishulluse ja kinnisvarapalaviku torm. Skandinaavia rahameeste toel tõotas see tõmmata lina üle sotsialistliku majanduse laiba ning muuta kõik säravaks ja uueks. Sellal, kui Eesti vaagis oma tulevikku sädeleva lääne vastse liikmena, maadlesin mina enda saatusega. Põhja-Euroopa oli mind peibutanud kalliskiviliku veetlusega, ent nüüd pidin tegelema tehtud otsuse tagajärgedega. Olin kui kits kahe heinakuhja vahel: mind sikutasid edasi-tagasi mu suure ameerika-itaalia perekonna vajadused ja maa, mille „metsarahvaga” oli keeruline sõbruneda. Päevad kahanesid rusuvalt lühikeseks ja asendusid põhjamaiste öödega ning mu peas kestis tormiline vaidlus saatuse ja vaba tahte vahel. Olin 23, värske abikaasa, peatne isa. Kas seda kõike olingi ma tahtnud? Justin Petrone

  • The year was 2003, the country Estonia. Great changes were blowing across this small land perched in the fringes of the north - a vote to join a union of European nations, a blizzard of Western consumerism, a feverish demand for real estate. Bankrolled by Scandinavian moneymen, it promised to draw a sheet over the corpse of the socialist economy and make everything shiny and new. While Estonia pondered its fate as a new member of the glittering West, I wrestled with my own fate as a husband and father to be, at the age of 23. I had been drawn to northern Europe by its gem-like allure but now had to deal with the permanence of my decisions. I was being pulled apart, tugged back and forth between this land of forest people who were hard to befriend and the needs of my own big Italian-American family. As the days grew crushingly short and the polar night set in, a tense debate between destiny and free will stormed within me. Was this what I had wanted?

I was then given to the state and foster care. This story tells how I fought adolescent attachment disorder and tells about my broken family and how I learned to fight to take control.

  • The book is about the 1994 sinking of the car ferry Estonia and the Russian mafia. While this is a work of fiction, the Estonia sinking actually happened. The characters in the book are fictitious. The author suggests a reason the sinking occurred, which is contrary to the official investigation. The thriller takes place in Estonia and the United Arab Emirates, with the main character a young CIA employee working out of the US Embassy.

  • See on nii romantiline! Mitu inimest on mu käsikirja kohta kasutanud just seda fraasi ja neil on õigus: noor kriisis ameeriklane armub põnevasse eestlannast ajakirjanikku ning alustab teekonda, mis taastab noormehe usu endasse ja maailma. Nõus. See on romantiline. Aga see teekond ei olnud lihtne. Välismaalane saabub keset kõige pimedamat talve ja peab jääma ellu sel kõige õnnetuma saatusega Skandinaaviamaal, kus iga perekonda kummitavad minevikuõudused, kus inimesed söövad verest tehtud vorste ja tarretiseks keedetud lihatükke, joovad sooja leivajooki, ning hilinemise eest võib neid tabada surmanuhtlus. Ma hakkasin seda maad armastama tema ilus ja inetuses, ja armastasin edasi ka neil hetkedel, kui mind maale tagasi lasta ei tahetud.

  • In the summer of 1985, two middle aged male members of Alcoholics Anonymous walked into my father's home and promised him a better life and a better son. What they were to deliver him in the years to come proved no less short of a nightmare. Written in the speaking style of AA members such as saying God and swearing in the same sentence, this meditation spoof recalls my 30 years as a member of their program with light hearted memories, humor and regrets. Telling my story what it was like, what happened, what it's like now and what we could do differently. This illustrated book is also dedicated to my late father, the only member of my immediate family to pride my sobriety in Alcoholics Anonymous One Horrid Day At A Time.

The more I close my eyes to fill in the blanks to remember what happened, the more confused I am.This book is entitled Crystal's Journey and is based on my life as I learn to live again after a traumatic event in which I died. My goal is to be able to help someone somewhere and bring hope to those who were involved in a traumatic event or are going through a traumatic event."God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Cast your cares upon the Lord; he truly cares for you" (Psalms 46:1).

  • In my adolescent years, I loved to play baseball. I loved to play basketball and football. I used to hang out with my friends all the time. As time passed, I was hired at a grocery store and worked my way up the ladder receiving a coveted promotion. Next came a job at a service station where I was able to do some of my homework because I had decided to further my education by attending college. After I served a two-year LDS mission, I returned to the U of U where I continued my education. Girls came into the picture, and so did a new car as well as a new job, and I had to pay for my car to be maintained. Plus I was still single, and had to pay for my dates.I loved life. In fact, I still do. I love my family and friends. But in a split second, my life changed forever. What happened to me could have just as easily happened to anyone. However, I’m glad it happened to me and not you! My family had their lives turned upside down, as well. My parents received the news that I had been in an accident . . .

  • What if someone disappeared from your life without giving any explanations? What if you were barely eight when this happened? And what if the person who vanished was your mother? Anastasia moved to England and got married to Peter far away from her native country, Russia, escaping a life of abuse and poverty. One day, she finds an old recipes notebook which belonged to her mother: the discovery takes her back with vivid clarity to the day her mother disappeared when Anastasia was not even eight yet. How can she move on with her life without knowing what happened almost twenty years earlier? The red notebook holds the key to the mystery which shaped her life and she has to face up to the past to find out what happened to her mother. She has to go back to Russia, her country, where she had to fend for herself most of her young life. Her quest is far from straightforward and not without its dangers, and will take her to the limits of her strength and determination. What she will find will change her forever. What does not kill you makes you stronger. This book has been inspired by my love for Russia and by my general admiration for human beings' resilience when they find themselves in extreme situations.

  • These stories were written primarily for my nephews and nieces and other members of the family because they have no clue about what our history and what had happen during the second world war. There are 120,000 different stories from 120,000 of Japanese Americans who were put in the concentration camp and my story is just one of many. Many have suppressed the past and forgot about them. I feel the story must be told. This is just my story and how I remembered the past. Others have experienced a different life some good some bad. My parents really had a positive outlook on life and that is why I have no bitterness on what has happened plus I was a pre-adolescent child who wanted to enjoy playing outdoors.
