    'Two years after my mother died, my father fell in love with a glamourous blonde Ukrainian divorcee. He was eighty-four and she was thirty-six. She exploded into our lives like a fluffy pink grenade, churning up the murky water, bringing to the surface a sludge of sloughed-off memories, giving the family ghosts a kick up the backside.' Sisters Vera and Nadezhda must put aside a lifetime of feuding to save their emigre engineer father from voluptuous gold-digger Valentina. With her proclivity for green satin underwear and ...

Tractors in Ukrainian

by Elayne H on May 3, 2012

This was an interesting book; very different from what I expected. A strange story.

dts1

great book

by dts1 on Jan 30, 2009

This is a great book that draws you in immediately and only gets better as you read on. Despite the fact that you have never experienced the circumstances described in the book, you can totally relate to it because it speaks to universal truths. Highly recommended.

Not to be missed.

by nosila37 on Aug 30, 2007

This book is very unusual and so true to the life of a marriage between an old man and a young woman with a hidden agenda. It is narrated by the daughter who expresses her feelings in asides which are hilarious. Do not worry about the strange title as, though tractors do feature, they are not the main theme of the book and, in fact, are interesting and informative believe it or not! Do try it , I'm sure you will like it especially if you are over 60 years old.
