Above the Water on Amazon's Hot New Releases List

Well this is cool! I am excited to see Above the Water listed on Amazon's Hot New Releases List for Historical Russian Fiction. Keep in the loop with more news by joining our list.



Above the Water

My first novel Above the Water is loosely based on several family members and includes anecdotes from my own experiences in East Asia. The title is a play on the Chinese characters for ‘Shanghai,’ which literally translate to ‘above the sea’ denoting the city’s location at the confluence of the Yangtze River and the East China Sea. It is an allegory about the compromises people are forced to make in difficult circumstances. Two lovers, Harry and Viktoria, have been cast apart by war and are making individual sacrifices in their respective journeys to find one another again. It’s a story of love, family, moral ambiguity, and perseverance.
