another you might also be interested in is the ship of brides by joyo moyes. it tells the story of four brides tavelling from australia to england to be with the british husbands they had married in austrailia during the second world war. put this book as a favourite.
i hope you will be able to get this book in america as i have recommended some books to my american friends and one was unable to get a book from the library.
if you would like me as your friend i would be pleased to accept.
as you have put in your discription that you like strong women characters in the books you read i though your might like to try

It's a new topic for me, also, but I have yet to look anything up. I'm too busy reading the book at this point. I have vague memories of Trotsky from World History and didn't remember that he died in Mexico but have heard plenty about Stalin's abuses over the years. I saw that Don K just finished a book on the Mexican Revolution so suspect he will have much to add on that subject.
