About this title

Synopsis:

An inspirational, true story of a woman's journey through the socialized healthcare system of Russia. The author vividly presents one of Russia's Far East cities through the backdrop of prenatal visits and birthing a child. As an American on foreign soil, she addresses her own struggles and assimilation with humor, playful analogies and personal faith which transcend the cultural divide. A timely book, addressing the question of population decline and healthcare conditions in post-Soviet Russia as well as socialized healthcare through an American's perspective.
