Summary
"Odessa, 1931. Marrying the handsome, wealthy Edward Gordon, Daria - born Dvora Kaganovitch - has fulfilled her mother's dreams. But a woman's plans are no match for the crushing power of Stalin's repressive Soviet state. To survive, Daria is forced to rely on the kindness of a man who takes pride in his own coarseness. Odessa, 1970. Brilliant young Natasha Crystal is determined to study mathematics. But the Soviets do not allow Jewish students - even those as brilliant as Natasha - to attend an institute as prestigious as Odessa University. With her hopes for the future dashed, Natasha must find a new purpose - one that leads her into the path of a dangerous young man... Brighton Beach, 2019. Zoe Venakovsky, known to her family as Zoya, has worked hard to leave the suffocating streets and small minds of Brighton Beach behind her - only to find that what she's tried to outrun might just hold her true happiness. Moving from a Siberian gulag to the underground world of Soviet refuseniks to oceanside Brooklyn, The Nesting Dolls is a heartbreaking yet ultimately redemptive story of circumstance, choice, and consequence - and three dynamic unforgettable women, all who will face hardships that force them to compromise their dreams as they fight to fulfill their destinies."--Publisher's description
