Get it here.
What a wonderful story. It's really cool seeing how people in other countries live, and how different it is from the US. I've never been outside America's borders, so it's really amazing to learn about Ukraine and Russia and the people that live there.
John and Irina wade through so much to reach a happy ending. It was a little slow to start, but I finally found myself invested in these characters, and I'm so glad I kept reading. It's funny how things will fight to keep us from happiness, but it's the ones that persevere and keep fighting for what they want, love, and believe that truly overcomes those obstacles.
This is that kind of book.
Pick it up and read it. You won't be disappointed.
Irina Balabanova is a beautiful Ukrainian girl, twenty-seven years of age and heartbroken. John Masters, a middle-aged American businessman, travels to eastern Ukraine on an ill-advised romantic venture, and is stranded in Kharkov with the onset of winter. Despite their wide differences of culture, language, and generation, the two are brought together in a whirlwind of love and adventure.
But their dreams of a life together are threatened by the acts of an extremely jealous Ukrainian State Security officer, who will stop at nothing to stop Irina from leaving their native country to marry an American. With perseverance and divine intervention, their love story unfolds in the most incredible way.
Inspired by actual events, Miracle From Ukraine is a story of international intrigue, faith, and romance.
