This book offers an epic love story set in England and Russia in the 1930s as two people overcome unbelievable hardship to be together from bestselling author Katie Flynn. 'Take care of Eva.' These words are all that remain of Pavel Fedorovna's former life, though she can no longer remember who said them. All she knows is that they marked the end of life as she knew it - and a new beginning in the Russian Caucasus. Meanwhile on Deeside, young David Thomas' carefree existence is torn apart by a shipping tragedy which will colour his whole life. A decade later David, now an engineer and working in Russia, meets the young Pavel, just as she is emerging into womanhood. But Russia in the 1930s is no place for young lovers and the story of their struggle to be together is a powerful tale of emotion, adventure, unbelievable hardship and ultimate triumph.
