It has been two years since Latvian-Canadian author Ilze Berzins published her last mystery novel, but she returns this month with a new work titled Freedom.
The story takes place on a small farm in Freedom, Maine, the author said in an e-mail to Latvians Online. Characters on the farm include “homesteaders Izzie and Nick and cranky old Aunt Marija,” Berzins said.
“Dzintra arrives from Rīga, hoping for a new life in America, but soon becomes involved in old grudges and secrets that put everyone’s life in jeopardy, including her own,” Berzins said.
The book is based on a true-life adventure, she said.
The 267-page book is scheduled for publication Nov. 23 by Ottawa-based Albert Street Press. It may be ordered for USD 25, including shipping, by contacting the author at email@example.com.
Berzins has authored eight books before Freedom, including the autobiographical Happy Girl and seven mysteries. Two years ago she released Ghosts & Shadows.
Ilze Berzins’ new mystery novel, Freedom, is due out this month.
