Product description

Review

‘A gripping and authentic narrative of a life that was at once ordinary and remarkable’ -- TLS

‘A heartbreaking story of survival through some of the worst conflicts and upheavals of our benighted age . . . moving and brilliant' -- Sunday Telegraph

‘[A]s good as 'Dr Zhivago' . . . terrific literature . . . it opens the doors to worlds we know nothing about' -- Jonathan Mirsky, Spectator

Synopsis

Olga Yunter was born in July 1900, in a remote frontier post in southern Siberia. A girlhood played out against the backdrop of the China trade changed forever, when, at seventeen, Olga joined her brothers in their fight against the Bolsheviks. Death and retribution followed. Olga was forced to flee to China, with rubies sewn into her petticoats. Twice more, Olga would be forced to leave everything behind - first to escape Mao's Communists, and again when Japan invaded China during World War II. From the comfort of her family to the terror of revolution, war and exile, "Olga's Story" is the heartbreaking tale of the author's grandmother.
