Karen Autio speaks about "SABOTAGE"

"SABOTAGE! BOLD ATTACK ON PORT ARTHUR WIRELESS STATION!"
It's 1915 and the Great War is raging in Europe. What does that have to do with Port Arthur, Ontario? Heaps, thinks John Maki. Sure, he's a prankster, but he's also a hard-working newsboy with a secret dream to be a reporter. So he keeps his eyes peeled, waiting for the big story.
His older sister, Saara, has her own concerns, like her goal of becoming a teacher. And like people not speaking to her just because she befriends a German girl! She scoffs at John's suspicions. German spies, blown-up bridges...surely not in northwestern Ontario.
Yet John knows that all of Canada's grain headed for hungry soldiers in Europe comes through Port Arthur first. A saboteur could do plenty of damage to the city, the country, and even the Maki family!
Sabotage is the final book of Karen Autio's trilogy about a Finnish family in early Thunder Bay. This story, told by both Saara and John, takes us into a real-life world of espionage, sabotage, and paranoia - right here in Canada!SABOTAGE can be ordered from your local bookstore or directly from
Sono Nis Press or www.amazon.com
