The Shoemaker and His Daughter
Gifted shoemaker Stanislav Suvorov is imprisoned for five years. His crime? Selling his car for a profit.
On his release, social shame drives him and his family into voluntary exile in Siberia, 5,000 kilometres from home. In a climate that's unfriendly both geographically and politically, it's their chance to start again. The Shoemaker and His Daughter is an epic story spanning the Second World War to the fall of the Soviet Union, taking in eighty years of Soviet and Russian history, from Stalin to Putin.
