Coming of age amid the fall of the Soviet Union
on 21 April 2017
"Anya's Story and Moscow Dreams" (Russian Historical Fiction) Kindle Edition
by Julia Gousseva. Against a backdrop of Russia in the 1990s and the Russian Northern Fleet's submarine tragedies comes this duology of a Russian girl's coming of age. As the Soviet Union falls and societal chaos makes paupers of some and millionaires of others, Anya finds love and fear, hope and strength. This two-book set is well written, thoughtful, and full of the realism that only an eye-witness to such events can impart. Read this book for its political and societal commentary, or for its wonderful story, or both. You won't be disappointed, particularly now, with the upheaval;s in Russia today.
