About Alina Adams: New York Times best-selling author, soap opera insider, and pioneer in online storytelling, Alina Adams, was born in the Soviet Union and immigrated with her parents to the U.S. at age seven, where she learned English by watching American soap operas at their home in San Francisco. She received her B.A. and M.A. in broadcast communications at San Francisco State University. Alina is an accomplished fiction writer and television producer. Her knowledge of Russian took her around the world as a figure skating researcher and television producer for ABC, NBC, TNT and ESPN.
About the book: Spanning nearly a century, from the 1930s Odessa to contemporary Brighton Beach, a page turning, epic family saga centering on three generations of women in one Russian Jewish family―each striving to break free of fate and history, each yearning for love and personal fulfillment―and how the consequences of their choices ripple through time.
