The Road Home - Rose Tremain

The Road Home (Back Bay, $14.99) is Rose Tremain’s touching and often humorous saga about an immigrant from the former USSR—the Ukraine? Belorussia?—someplace in that cold and backward part of Europe. Lev has left his little girl with his own mother so he can go to England, partly to make a better life, partly to leave behind the grief over his recently dead wife. He takes any job he can, since he is all but destitute, and fortunately most people are kind. He finally gets a good position in an upscale restaurant where he learns how to cook. His sense of being out of place is never assuaged; he thinks often about his family and his best friend, Rudi. When he learns that a dam will drown their village, he works two jobs to save money to open his own restaurant in the new town that the dam will create.
