Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Doozhe finno! Wonderful! Loved it. While I haven't actually completed reading the book, I'm enthused! Luba's life mirrors my own in many ways--my roots are also Ukrainian. And some of the things Luba recollects are similar to those of my own experience. I had the privilege of meeting Ms. Goy in 1988 when she came to Edmonton for the celebration of 1000 Years of Christianity in Ukraine. It was a short encounter but she did admire my costume (I was the 'Greeter' to the exposition). Have enjoyed her on Air Farce from the time it was on CBC Radio. Dyakouyou Lubo - Thank you Luba.
