ABOUT THE BOOK
Set against one of the most dramatic periods of the twentieth century, Forty Autumns is a true story of one family's courage, resilience and quiet defiance in the face of a bizarre totalitarian regime that kept its citizens isolated from the free world.
It is a story about a world at war - about the
Soviet-American superpower struggle for ideological superiority, the birth and death of a reclusive communist nation - and about the power of one family's love and their four-decade struggle to reunite.
