A charming account of a gentleman's life in Russia at a time of transition when survival meant not only adapting to one's circumstances but planning beyond them.

A raw honest account

Just curious about the girl who I remembered as Gidget and then the Flying Nun I came to realise as I listened to her life story that here was a brave attempt to be true to herself and those close to her in recalling events that shaped her life. At times I found the book quite moving.

It is not often that I am disappointed when a book ends. Such a good read!

Like most Australians i had seen this story unfold on tv. I really feel for the children and their mother. The story is well told and i believe an honest account with added insights and reflection.

an amazing true story

I loved this book. An inspiring story well told. Good narrator but definitely not an Australian to an Aussie ear and it would have improved the audio experience if a dinkey di Aussi actor was used.

I was really enjoying this book until a twist in plot made it so unbelievable that I lost interest. A pity as there were some good elements there.

sensitive reading of a book which revealed gradually many levels of understanding by the protagonist and thence the reader.

Well researched documentary on World War II made more interesting with fiction interwoven. I really enjoyed this book which provided insights behind the politics and strategies of the struggle between nations for world domination and order. A great sequel to 'Winds of War'.
