Summary (From the publisher):

In a tiny village in Finland, Esko Vaananen is at the brink of despair—he loves a woman he can never have. Suddenly, in the magical light of the aurora borealis, he has a vision of an impossibly tall building rising gracefully from the frozen lake and disappearing into the clouds above him. This pilvenpiirtaja—"cloud sketcher" or skyscraper—sparks a lifelong quest for beauty in Esko. He will pursue and protect these two passions—his vision and his love—no matter how great the cost, for the rest of his life. It is a journey that leads him into the Bolshevik revolution and the Jazz Age nightclubs of New York City and to strike a Faustian bargain with a ruthless gangster—all in the pursuit of artistic perfection and impossible, unattainable love.
