From School Library Journal:

YA After being denied entrance into the prestigious Moscow University because he is Jewish, Lozansky marries the daughter of a high-ranking Soviet general. Then he and his wife, Tatiana, lived the life of the privileged Russian elite. Even so, after tireless discussion, the Lozanskys decided to leave their homeland for the United States and freedom. Edward would leave first; Tatiana and their daughter would follow. In December 1976, Edward left Russia. His wife and daughter were not allowed to leave. Thus began their six-year fight against the Soviet system. Lozansky's account critically details life in the Soviet Union, the legal illegalities, the KGB, the mistrust, and the deception. Tatiana briefly chronicles their struggle while being watched and hounded by the government. Their story is one of tremendous love and conviction. It is one that will make readers angry, frustrated, and thankful for the rights that Americans have. Teens with an interest in current affairs, Soviet life, and human rights will find this a compelling story. Lozansky leaves a few loose ends but as Tatiana says about other divided families, "this story, this struggle, will not be over. "Kathryn Dunn, PGCMLS, Md.

From Publishers Weekly:

Writing about tense, highly charged episodeshis six-year effort to obtain from the Kremlin exit visas for his wife and daughterLozansky fails to check his emotions and, unfortunately, ultimately becomes tiresome. One is sorry that he hasn't let his tale simply tell itself, for this is at once a political drama, a cultural exegesis and a domestic imbroglio about a provincial from a Kiev working-class background who becomes a physicist and marries the Moscow-bred daughter of a three-star general. That Lozansky is Jewish (his wife is not) also influenced events. Conveying the loneliness of the outsider he became when he applied to his government to emigrate to the U.S., and his frantic activities after arriving in this country in 1976 to publicize his and his wife's petitions to the Soviets to allow his family to join him, Lozansky has written a very human tale of mundane life affected by political tensions. Tatiana and teenage Tania made landfall here finally in 1982, and the reunited family now lives in Washington, D.C. Photos not seen by PW.
