Book Description

In his Russian-language novel Island of Hopes, author Leonid Khaychenko relates the dreams and different destinies of those who escaped from the burning lands of civil war after the Russian Revolution. The new pages of an unknown life open for Vsevolod Olsky, his sister Klavdia, and their friends, sending them on long roads fraught with dangers and losses, until they eventually reach Paris. But there, other risks meet them and those others who stand up to fight against the enemy that had forced them to leave Russia. Also told is the story of one life -- telling how difficult it is to be oneself and follow one's own believes in humanity. A story that eventually leads to tragedy. While fishing on the bank of the River Seine, two elderly Frenchmen and one Russian friend swear to save the world, which conducts them through the dramatic and harrowing days of World War II. Love, passion, and humor -- you will meet them all in Island of Hopes.
