Daughters of the World

Maailmantyttäret

’We were more or less orphans, and we decided to more or less to save the world.’

Five girls meet at the Harmony Camp for the lonely. Lise-Lotte’s parents were taken by Nunezia fever, Kaia is grieving for her family, and Ritva is pissed off by The Earth Home’s hypocritical atmosphere. Zerinda’s brain is torn by her ancestress’ memories from the edge of the apocalypse, and she’s not sure whether she still holds the ownership of her mind. Joselina’s brother has died in an attack of mysterious mechanical insects, and together the five girls set out to find the truth. Fighting and dancing, they are lead on by the mystery, through the wonders of The Earth Home.

Daughters of the World is a brave utopia set in The Earth Home, where people are equal, nature is healing, and capitalism has been smashed. The journey of five girls is a mirage of an adventure novel, a modern take on friendship and a visionary study on a better world.

Enoranta’s vision of the future is dazzling in its life force, restoring the reader’s ability to dream.

Reviews

“The idealism in this novel is delightfully open and shameless, fully aware of the pitfalls of preaching yet running towards them with joyful laughter. … To all daughters of the world, a triumphant utopia that one would hope to end up in the hands of decision-makers around the world. ” – Arla Kanerva, Helsingin Sanomat newspaper

“The utopia of the Earth Home is simultaneously both distant and sufficiently realistic to be believed. The journey of the protagonists opens this world to the reader, while sharing a lot about the acceptance of oneself and others, the limited natural resources, and the limitlessness of love. The only downside to the book is that the world it promises is not – yet – true. ”– Joonas Riekkola, Savon Sanomat newspaper
