This is the funny and touching story of immigrant life in London. Lev is a 42-year old widower and economic refugee from Eastern Europe who finds life in his new country much harder than expected. It’s not all struggle and homesickness, however. Tremain, in this her 14th book, builds fantastic comedic characters. My favorite is Rudi, Lev's friend back home, a taxi driver with a broken-down but cherished "Tchevi," symbol of another "promised land." This book is for anyone who feels the pull of two countries or who wonders about those who do. The ending is somewhat contrived, but I loved the book so much, all is forgiven.

Rose Tremain created a poignant character, Lev, an immigrant to London from an Eastern European country who got into my heart and my head. Lev brought me closer to the immigrant experience of my own grandparents and made me care deeply about what became of him at a time when I was enduring the health crisis of my husband, and the death of a beloved sister-in-law. Rose Tremain writes beautifully and this book is perfectly paced......almost a page turner, yet rich in cultural references with a sub-strata for foodies as well.
