The daughters of an 85-year old UK-citizen, who was actually an immigrant from Ukraine, but has been living in the UK for many decades, are totally shocked when their father decides to marry Valentina, a Ukranian beauty. The situation turns out quite interesting when Valentina does succed in marrying their father...
A very nice book, which with its funny, messy plot presents various aspects and levels of being a foreigner. Loved reading it! It is now on its way to its next reader!

The book arrived today. I'm thrilled--I was hoping this is what it would turn out to be when I chose it.

Absolutely NO PROBLEM about the delay. I'm knee-deep in books here!

Thanks so much for sending this to me, and for the gorgeous postcard.

This story is sad, touching, and funny all at the same time. The characters are very well done.

Bloedengel has chosen this from the Global Villages VBB. Canadian postal workers gave strike notice yesterday and can go on strike later this week. I'm going to wait a few days to see what happens before I put this in the mail.

Moved indeed and ... it reached me. How cool is that.

A very funny book. Sometimes she lost me in her description of the dad, and sometimes I thought her turn of plot wasn't the best she could have picked, but overall an enjoyable and interesting book.
I chose this one as a RABCK to remember Oppem, because it was on the wishlist of someone who sent me one of her books to remember her as a RABCK, so this is the boomerang-remembrance-book. What an extraordinary book !
