Originally published in Finnish by Gummerus Publishers as Taivaalta tippuvat asiat, 2015.
One quirk of fate can send life spiralling in the most unexpected direction... Three lives are changed forever by a series of random events: a young girl loses her mother when a block of ice falls from the sky; a woman wins the jackpot twice; and a man is struck by lightning four times. Selja Ahava weaves together these unique stories in a charming, one-of-a-kind tale about just how far people will go to force life into a logical pattern they can make sense of. Things that Fall from the Sky is a story of everyday life. But it is also a meditation on the passing of time, the endurance of love and the pain of loss.
Translated from Finnish.
