I can't be the only one who reads Helen Dunmore books.

(It's not a book. Just an article).

But I don't mind if you don't read it. 🙂

What a terrible time they had. Just goes to show that what we all really need is just someone to talk to and care for.

A wonderful story. The picture of Ivanna as an old woman is beautiful.

Made me realise what an old romantic at heart I am. I was sad that they never got to meet each othersad

That was such a beautiful story, both tragic and triumphant. I was so saddened to read that when at last she traced Vladimir, it was only to discover he had recently died. That was really unfair sad

Thanks Gonegirl.
