Raimo Perttu’s New Book ‘Lock Forty’ Chronicles A Family Saga During The Decline Of The Canaling Business in Competition With The Advent Of The Railroad

Raimo Perttu, a retired German teacher, has completed his most recent book, Lock Forty:  a fascinating novel that traces the historical past of the Ohio and Erie Canal and follows the difficult life journey of John and his family as they run their canaling business.
Raimo writes, “Lock Forty is an intimate portrayal of a young man’s struggle to develop his canalling business and raise his young family, set upon the historical backdrop of the Ohio and Erie Canal. The story is told through the eyes of John’s wife, Mary, as she tells their grandchildren the family saga. It is a tale of their struggle to survive in competition with the advent of the railroad, but even more, it is a personal trial of John’s torn loyalties to both his immediate family and his recent past.”
Published by Fulton Books, Raimo Perttu’s book is a brilliant fusion of the Ohio and Erie canal history woven into a family drama where readers will enjoy the gripping tale of the characters involved.
Readers who wish to experience this profound work can purchase Lock Forty at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
