Agnes Rajala kept her writing to herself.
In fact, she didn't get around to showing it to her family until she presented them with the manuscript of "Waters Like the Sky: Book 1 – The Chronicles of an Unlikely Voyageur."
But as her daughter explains, by the end of her life in 2013, she was not only excited about the publishing of this book with her daughter, Nikki, she had another in the series ready to go.
Agnes and Nikki Rajala's book "Waters Like the Sky: Book 1 – The Chronicles of an Unlikely Voyageur" was nominated for the Northeastern Minnesota Book Award (NEMBA) in Fiction and is published by North Star Press of St. Cloud. All this summer, we'll be bringing you books about the Northland, from the Northland by NEMBA award-winners and nominees.
