A deeply moving story beautifully told.
A modern day immigration story of a Russian trying to make a new life in England. Very well written and interesting.
I enjoyed this novel by Rose Tremain. However she seems to confuse the country Poland with Russia. On page 26, she writes that a Russian woman states: our country is part of the EU now. This is an error - Russia is NOT part of the EU. However Poland is now in the EU. F. Psutka
I read this book a few years ago and can still remember how wonderful it was.
Out of work widower Lev makes his way from Russia to London to find work. Eventually he finds work - and his calling - in a restaurant. After working 2 restaurant jobs he saves enough to return home and open his own restaurant.
Fantastic book about one immigrant man's incredible journey to help his family and himself...Highly recommend it.
Beautiful novel; holds you spellbound
