Kerran kesällä is Joel Lehtonen’s novel first published in 1917. Lauri Falk is a sympathetic young artist. He longs for a change in his life: in his home region he dreams of going abroad, while abroad he longs for his homeplace. Even if Lauri wants to be a better person, he can't be anything else but what he actually is – an artist. In the spring, Lauri arrives in his homeplace and plans to commit suicide. He meets old acquaintances and new people. As the summer progresses, Lauri falls in love with the beautiful and innocent Svea Rosa, and he begins to dream of a new future.
