Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Shmulenson’s portrayal of Marina M. embodies all the confidence of a youth who is struggling with questions, fear, and doubts that assail her as she tries to find her place in a brutal, rapidly changing world. Shmulenson gives distinctive voices to all the speakers, helping the attentive listener keep the large cast of characters straight. She handles the many Russian names with the aplomb of a native speaker. Overall, Fitch immerses Marina’s story in accurate historical detail, and Shmulenson breathes life into it.” AudioFile
