    " This was an interesting read with a lot of historical information about Russian work camps that I didn't know about. The book focuses more on the love story than the horrors of the work camps. "

    " I loved this account of an incredible story of two people who manage to stay together against all the odds. I have read fuller more horrifying accounts of the gulags (not least, The Gulag Archipelago), but this brings it all home to life. Wonderful. "
