Description of this Book

Is all love doomed under a heartless regime?Antonina is a student at the prestigious Academy of Art in St Petersburg, though at times she feels she might be a better fit at the Centre of Non-conformist Art across town. She knows she stands out as different, being neither Russian, Korean nor Kazak - and yet she embodies them all. She is Koryo-Saram- a descendant of the exiled population that Stalin labelled the Unreliable People. But what does that mean? And why did the strange, elegant woman entice her as a young child to climb out of her bedroom window to go on a long train journey through Kazakhstan? This is a compelling story where love and loss intersect unexpectedly with a Korean fable about a crow king and a rice farmer?s wife.
