This is a richly painted canvas of an iconic city, in many ways relevant to our understanding of the Russia of today. It is a story about a woman in search of a new self and it’s hard not to fall in love with Olivia with her enormous appetite for life or for that matter her lover Volodya who she meets at the flower stall. I fell in love with them both. But Wendy Robertson’s greatest gift is in making us fall in love with the place and its people. Gorgeous
Olivia Ozanne is my hero- totally honest about who she is, warts and all, knowing she has failed as a mother and wife but always remaining true to herself and keeping the faith with her writing.
As always, this writer has woven an intricate tale with many memorable characters, the love of her life Volodya, the grey and brown Aunties, her daughter and son, even the odious Kendrick. They will all remain in my head for a long time and when I say you must read this book, I really mean it!
The 'Aunties' are enchanting and would have made a novel on their own. The whole idea of them meeting in a world hostile to their love for each other and also the actuality of their joint experiences through such a tempestuous era is exciting
And threaded through all this marvellous storytelling and characterization is Olivia's experience of being a writer; having to make uncomfortable choices, to find the nub of magic at the core of any good story and discover how to execute the narrative. It is the honesty and self-knowledge of Olivia Ozanne that gives this novel its momentum and keeps the reader entranced to the end.
