Forty Autumns selected by Amazon as one of the buzzbooks of the season!
Now available. A comprehensive companion guide that includes discussion prompts, research projects, and educational resources.
Set against one of the most dramatic periods of the twentieth century, Forty Autumns is a story of one family's courage, resilience, unbending determination and quiet defiance in the face of a bizarre totalitarian regime that kept its citizens isolated from the western world.
It is a story about a world at war - about the Soviet-American superpower struggle for ideological superiority, about the birth and death of a reclusive communist nation - and about the power of one family's love and their four-decade struggle to transcend authoritarian oppression, to find each other again.
