    Is love more compelling than justice? A wife pleads for love. Her husband longs for revenge. Gripping and evocative, Some Unfinished Business tells the story of a young man who is determined to prevail through anti-Soviet resistance in occupied Lithuania, imprisonment in the Gulag, and the icy hands of bureaucracy that attempt to thwart his love for a woman with a mysterious past -- all while chasing the back of the man who dared him to dream in the first place. At fourteen, Martin Averka met a teacher from the city who inspired him to seek out the wide world beyond his small village of Lyn Lake. Years later, having lived under the tyranny of an autocratic system populated by cowards and bullies and seeking revenge, he breaks into the Pažaislis Monastery Asylum to come face to face with the man from his youth for one last time. Antanas Sileika is a Canadian author of five previous books of fiction, as well as a memoir.
