5.0 out of 5 stars Janna brings to life a torrid love affair that unfolds during the Cold War Era, July 10, 2014

J. Walter Cohen "J. Walter Cohen"

This review is from: Love Is Never Past Tense...: (Epic Russian Romance Saga) (Kindle Edition)

This book is gripping from the first page. Janna brings to life a torrid love affair that unfolds during the Cold War Era, proving that love in the Soviet Union was anything but cold. There is no mushy romance here, but a genuine struggle to find love in spite of societal pressures and family expectations. Add to this a dangerous scheme to defect when malevolent forces threaten her life, and you have the makings of a genuine thriller.

I love the way Janna writes. From one paragraph to the next, you never know what to expect. This book did not insult my intelligence, like a lot of pop culture novels. It is intellectually engaging, written in a manner that Hemingway would have respected. It not only granted me the opportunity to see the U.S.S.R. from the inside like I had never seen it before, but it also brought back many memories of a time when I feared all Russians and had no understanding of what they were personally living through across the ocean.

I highly recommend this read. Love, suspense, and history at its best!
