Moonlight in Odessa

Daria is twenty-five and has an engineering degree. She’s bright, talented and - especially now she’s got a set of new teeth - attractive. But as her home is Odessa in Ukraine she feels her possibilities are limited - not least in her choice of men. Much as she loves her homeland, it’s not long before she starts to succumb to the American dream. Daria is the heroine of a new novel, Moonlight in Odessa, that delves with wit and poignancy into the world of email brides. Its author, Janet Skeslien Charles, joins Jenni.
Moonlight in Odessa by Janet Skeslien Charles, is published on 15 February 2010 by Bloomsbury.
ISBN 978 0 7475 9943 2
