"A good memoir brings a single life sharply into focus; when that life illuminates a turbulent historical context, the results can be enthralling... Paper Poppies is such a book." ~ Kathryn Atwood for Midwest Book Review
"[For] those who are interested in World War II, Russia, orphans, Jewish heritage, spiritual journeys, triumph over adversity, and a view of the world from a perceptive child's eyes... I found it deeply moving." ~ Pamela Brunson, missionary with World Witness
During World War II a crippled Russian/Jewish orphan, the daughter of Soviet scientists, embarks on a poignant search for Truth and hope, and finally discovers the light of Christ even in such a dark time and place. We travel with the author on a journey of understanding the times and of spiritual discovery. English translation, first published in Russia to critical acclaim. The story and writing style are reminiscent of Anne Frank's Diary.
