The Long Journey Home by Flore Leipman

Wow! An amazing book about the Scottish born author. The daughter of a immigrant parents – whose family & ancestors had migrated from a variety of Countries – Poland,Germany,Russia,Switzerland & France. Flora finds herself & her siblings heading back to Russia following the death of her father in Scotland. The life that Flora and her family were to endure was nothing short of horrific. Life was very hard & the Regime through this time was full of red tape and very restricting. I would have liked to have learn’t about the reunion of Flora and her brother Sammy, who Flora believed had perished in the Camps in the Soviet Union.
