Riassunto:
"Moscow Dreams by Julia Gousseva is one of the most captivating and engaging books I have read in some time."
--ChristophFischerBooks, Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer

"The constant theme that is running through this novel is 'change.' Frightening, yet exciting change, with absolutely no guarantees for the future, that can be experienced only by those who lived through turbulent times. There is a constant metaphor for this 'change' in the form of a colorful, sacred Tibetan sand, that Marina's father brought for her from one of his overseas expeditions, that runs through the story and neatly loops into itself at the end."
--Oleg Medvedkov, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

"The descriptions are utterly honest, drawn faithfully and in precise, authentic detail, all of which builds our trust in the writing. Through the observant eyes of this sharp-minded girl, we become witnesses to an increasingly turbulent time of change: the Perestroika period, which restructured the Soviet political and economic system, and caused of the dissolution of the Soviet Union, during 1991-1992."
--Uvi  Poznansky,  Amazon Reviewer

From the Author:
           Life is always changing, flowing like sand through the fingers.

A peaceful summer morning in Moscow is invaded by a column of tanks rumbling down a quiet tree-lined street. People are protesting in the streets, independent news outlets are being silenced, and Mikhail Gorbachev is declared unfit to run the country. His whereabouts are unknown.
 
It is August 19, 1991, and the communist hardliners are attempting a coup with plans of eliminating Mikhail Gorbachev and turning back his democratic reforms.
 
 
 
"What will happen if they win?" asks Marina, the teenage protagonist.
 
"It will be Stalin's regime all over again."

 
 
 A chilling prediction indeed.
 
"Moscow Dreams" is both a coming of age novel and historical fiction, with changes in the former USSR paralleling changes in the lives of the young protagonists.
 
After the coup, Marina and her friends are thrust into drastic social, political, and economic changes. Security is replaced by questions and doubts, and the only thing that is constant is the feeling of uncertainty and the impermanence of life.
