What drove Wilhelm Anders Back to become ‘Australia’s richest Finn’? Who was led to live on the ‘Promised Land’ that his father prayed for? Why did his brother-in-law warn ‘There will be reprisals’ before bringing his family to Australia? Midnight Sun moves between Australia and Finland to contrast Ruth’s grandfather’s formative years in Europe and her own upbringing in outback Queensland and in St Lucia, the iconic Brisbane suburb he developed.
