The shoemaker and his daughter. By Conor O'Cleary.
Loved it. A history of Russia over the last 80 years from Stalin to Putin. Conor is married to Zhanna Suvorov and the story is all about her family. From Grozny to Siberia it never wilts. Complicated historical events are clearly explained. Ordinary lives are caught up in extraordinary times. You can only marvel at the human spirit and man's ability to triumph against the odds.
Very readable. the sort of book I looked forward to picking up. Well written. 8/10
