'A tender and moving debut novel' - Candis Magazine
'An impressive debut: intelligent, moving, and flitting easily between the artistic salons of Soviet Russia and the Boston of today' - Guardian
'A memorable love story cleverly disguised as historical fiction' - Red Magazine
'Part romance, part mystery, this elegant debut captures the danger - and refuge - of love in Stalin's era' - Good Housekeeping
