About the Book

In My Life through My Dresses, the first book in A Journey of a Recovering Idealist series, Marina Berkovich describes her life under the yoke of Soviet Union, and shares what she learned about the totalitarian government that raised humans as dysfunctional beings. Berkovich weaves her miniature epics of personal survival into a wise and compassionate story of historical value, adding a new dimension to the understanding of Russian history. The story will soon continue with In the Land of the Freed, detailing Marina’s many adventures in her early days in USA, and My Life through Their Dresses, a heartbreaking account of tribulations Marina’s family members underwent during revolutions, wars, Perestroika and immigration.
