This is the true story of a woman's will to succeed and overcome all obstacles to find a better life.
Born and educated in USSR, she qualified as a Geodesic Engineer and then, after obtaining a degree in law, worked for the communist party in Siberia for 20 years.
During this time she worked her way up the party hierarchy to the level of "nomenklatura" (senior position), all the while enduring the hostile environment of the Siberian Frontier.
Eventually with the breakup of the U.S.S.R., and after establishing several businesses, she realised that the only hope for a better life was to emigrate. She met and married an Englishman and moved to the UK experiencing all the problems of learning a new language at the age of 53 and adapting to a very different culture.
