    In Russian Winter, the beautiful debut novel by critically acclaimed writer Daphne Kalotay, a famed ballerina’s jewelry auction in Boston reveals long-held secrets of love and family, friendship and rivalry, harkening back to Stalinist Russia. Russian Winter is a perfect choice for fans of the novels of Debra Dean (The Madonnas of Leningrad), Ann Patchett (Bel Canto), and Ian McEwan (Atonement).

    Would you listen to Russian Winter again? Why?

    I bought this book to read for my book club. I would not have picked it without prompting. I found the story compelling, but not enough to read it again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Russian Winter?

    When she fell in love, and then her belief that he had betrayed her.


    What does Kathleen Gati bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I found the narrator very easy to listen to. She brought the book alive. I'm not sure I would have finished the book, otherwise.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book continues with the exciting fantasy tale of adventure, intrigue, mystery,malice, love, war...One could listen to this as a stand-alone, but it is best when read in sequence.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Storm of Swords?

    John's 'going over' to the wildings' side. His love affair and his loyalty issues. Well written.


    Have you listened to any of Roy Dotrice’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    When my son suggested I read The Game of Thrones, I was skeptical. I bought only the first book. I got hooked and bought the next three. I recently drove across the country from WA to VA. Let me tell you, This series kept me alert and interested the whole way.
