Misha lost his family.He can't rest until he has found them, if only to find himself.
Inspired by true events in the life of the author’s father, Mihail Ichizli, this novel tells the story of an orphanage graduate, who set out from a village in Soviet Moldova, to the University of Odessa, Ukraine, in the hopes of finding the family he had lost as a toddler during World War II. His quest will not be in vain. But will what he discovers bring him a much longed-for peace, or will it only bring him misery? Little does Misha know what he will find out – not only of his own past, but also about the orphanage; a place he believed he had left behind for ever.
"A deeply moving story, very beautifully told. I frequently found myself pausing to breath in a particularly lovely sentence, before eagerly turning the page to find out what was to happen next.“Menna van Praag, bestselling author of The House at the End of Hope Street
Includes the first four chapters from Victoria’s upcoming novel “A Life Upside Down: A Spy’s Daughter”

I read this book from beginning to end the day I received it. It was captivating! An easy to read book and one of the best books I have read all year. I finished the book feeling a special connection to Misha.
I didn't want this book to end, and I still have questions that I hope will be answered in a second book. I will read it again and it has a permanent place in my bookcase. I believe this author is one to follow..
A sweet story of a man looking for his family -- what I particularly liked was that the writing style was just not American or British, but Eastern European -- charming!
