Ahh I couldn't decide what genre! In my eyes, it's a classic. But also Historical Fiction! But since the novel takes place in the time of war, so war and military it shall be.

A novel in the works...here is some beginning info on it:

It takes place in the early 20th century, in the agricultural (and somewhat poor) era of Sweden. Furthermore, Sweden also went through drastic changes as a country during this time, especially religion. In our history, Poland, Lithuania, and Sweden fought against each other in the 30 Years War during the Middle Ages due to the spread of Christianity across Eastern Europe and in some parts of Scandinavia. The Treaty of Westphalia was settled after the war was over and stated that, "these three countries must agree to spread the Christian faith and acceptance." But centuries later, Sweden, once again, made drastic changes to be more distinct and was on the verge of leaving the Christian faith to more of a Protestant religion (and nowadays, 81% of Swedes practice Islam, www.sweden.se). But during the earliest 20th century, Poland believed that Sweden broke the Treaty of Westphalia and declared war on the small, growing nation.

Amarna Westerlund, who came from one of the fewest aristrocratic families in Sweden, has lived a political and militiary life due to her father's status. Her father, who was a former general, and chairman of the military deptartment fell ill to lead the Swedish forces and has let Riksdag (parliament of Sweden) decide to have Amarna in control since her father taught her about this way of life. Amarna Westerlund, has poses challenges and high expectations for being the first woman militant leader in the country and that period of time. She goes through turmoil as well as triumph through particular battles. Not only she struggled in this war, but with herself mentally and emotionally.

Until the last battle, The Battle of Nordstrom, determines her faith as well as her final destiny in life.
