Russian Winter Publisher: Harper - Daphne Kalotay

The author has done a great job of describing the bitterly cold winters in Boston, St Petersburg and Moscow. Such a great job, that I almost forgot I was lying on a beach on Marthas Vineyard in 80 degree temperatures, and was in fact trudging through the snow in Red Square.  


Luckily, I have proof that I was on the beach.
