A light but thought-provoking book

A wonderful book with a new take on a well-worn premise : a widowed father falls for a young busty blonde and meets his grown children’s wrath. Add to that that the father’s life ambition is to complete a book on the history of tractors in Ukranian and you have a fun-filled comedy of manners.

A light-hearted way to brush up on Soviet and Ukranian history while pondering the limits of adult children meddling in older parents’ lives.

Marina LEWYCKA has a wicked sense of humor and I am clamoring for more.
