Today I’m taking part in the blog tour of the new novel by Janna Yeshanova Love Is Never Past Tense.

The events described in the book occur amidst complicated changes in the political and economic system of the former Soviet Union. In this period of great turmoil, for the country and the people, a period of many broken destinies, the book weaves its story within the discord of the country. Fear is growing, an animal fear. There remains only one way, emigration. This is the same thing as evacuation without bombing and without the ability to come back, the author writes. You cannot give a better definition. The rest you need to read. Because of this, the book delivers multifaceted, versatile content in huge volume to the reader’s range of vision. In some special moments, the author makes us breathless, frantic with worry, and hoping to relax if a satisfactory solution of the situation arrives.

Love Is Never Past Tense… was published first in Russia and Ukraine in 2009, and is now available in English. It is a fascinating, adventurous, historical romance based on a true story.

Now that you know a little bit about the novel, you’ll want to know:
