Read in January, 2012

This story was set in the Soviet Union from WW II to the early 90s. I grew up during the Cold War so I was aware of the difficult life most Soviets had. Yet everything was shadowed by mystery. This novel brought another layer, a reality to the pictures already in my mind. It follows a war hero's life as he tries with pride and dignity to make a good life for himself and his family. A heartbraking tale that I couldn't put down.
