An unexpected passionate romantic beach encounter leads to a hasty marriage, divorce, and the inevitable “if only…” The Soviet Union fades around them, sending their once comfortable lives into chaos. World changing events put their lives in peril, creating memories of what might have been and hopes for what might yet be… A modern epic Russian second-chance romance with unforgettable characters!

Enjoy this excerpt:

She flew one thousand kilometers to rescue him, to rescue them in the name of what—Moscow registration? Bosh! In the name of the preservation of love? And he had not made two steps, though he could easily reconcile both parties. How much could he have done later to save their love, their sincere feelings? In this life, it appears, you need to struggle, fight, and tear with your teeth those who intrude on the sanctity of love between two human beings.

Certainly, tearing his parents with his teeth did not follow. They understood human words, and gradually, their tone began to soften. Janna managed to reduce their negative attitude towards her.

Conversations, already quiet and logically weighed, began. “Where will you live? You have three more years of school. Spouses should live together, but here in our house it is simply impossible. You have a sister who should study too and so on and so on.” The romanticism of relationships was replaced by real everyday questions. When Janna was getting ready to fly home to talk to her mom, though, more pressure was applied.

Serge, Janna, and his mother went outside. “OK Serge, let’s go,” invited Janna.

“He will not take you to the airport,” said his mom.

“He told me he will.”

“I know him better than you. He will do as I say.”

Serge stood dead in his tracks, silent. Janna left by herself.
