5.0 out of 5 stars A moving and uplifting true love story., 30 May 2012
By 
This review is from: Just Send Me Word: A True Story of Love and Survival in the Gulag (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These types of gritty, realistic historical stories are worth reading for many reasons. Having read A.Solzhenitsyn's books and many other books on fairly recent Russian history I found this tale fascinating. Lev and Sveta had a life long relationship that beggars description. They survived the Gulags and World War II and much more besides. They seemed to have written about 1500 letters that somehow survived the censors. Probably because they were apolitical and coded.
It was amazing that Sveta communicated with a so called dissident for so long and wasn't arrested herself. She was a very brave woman. A great read and thoroughly recommended.
