Although this is the second book in the series it can also be read as a stand alone novel. This is the story of a young Russian woman trying to raise her daughter after her husband is killed. The only thing better than the novel is the narration. I was voluntarily provided a review copy by the author publisher or narrator
Interesting historical fiction, with a lot of details about life in Russia in the 1990's. In this book, Anya is back to Moscow, and her life gets even more difficult before the first glimpses on happiness appear on her horizon. We were glad to see a happier ending to this part of her story. Dawn Adkins did a great job narrating this book.
I loved this sequel to Anya's Story. The ending of the first book was a little heart-breaking, and I was glad to see that things got better for Anya in this sequel. Dawn Adkins did a great job narrating both books.
