The Odessans, Paperback Book


An epic and engrossing novel set at the beginning of the twentieth century, THE ODESSANS is the story of three families from Odessa in the Ukraine: the Russian Petrovs, the Jewish Geibers, and the Teslenkos, who are of Ukrainian and Polish descent.

Throughout years of war, famine, political struggle and incredible hardship, their deep friendships sustain each of the families.

Their lives are rent by tragedy; some friends are hounded by anti-Semites, while others join opposite sides in the Civil War or are forced to flee to Odessa.

But through it all, their characteristic good humour and faith in each other enable their close circle to survive.
