I MARRIED A RUSSIAN: Letters from Kharkov

Email this review


Letters from an English girl to her sister during ten years of married life in Russia- 1935-1945. There are the personal discoveries, the early lack of adjustment, the growing love of the strange new ways. The visits home convinced her of the rightness of her choice, and the letters in their detailed, human feelings, and homely incidents relating to her scientist husband and Russian home provide background for the awareness of approaching war, horror at England's blindness, and the flight with the coming of the Germans. A book that in its personal terms make very real the Russian character and life in that country.
