NOW ON THE INDIE NEXT LIST FOR SEPTEMBERI am going to change my rating on this book to a 35 rounded up to a 4 star book I love books about spies particularly women spies so I had really high expectations for this book I had some problems with the flow back and forth between what was happening with the author of Dr Zhivago Boris Pasternak in the East and what was going on in the West centering on the CIA and how it planned to use the book as a weapon against the Soviets All in all I enjoyed this book it just took me a while to get through it The novel starts during the time of the Cold War four years after the end of WWII Boris Pasternak was a renowned writer in Russia short stories and poetry and was well loved by the Russian government and the general population that is until Russia became the USSR under Lenin and then Stalin Boris saw many of his fellow artists writers musicians painters being taken away to labor camps or met with an even worse fate Stalin tolerated Boris and he was allowed to live in a beautiful country home as well as his apartment in Moscow At the point when we enter the story Boris is working on what he hopes will be his masterpiece He is writing a novel about the way Russia used to be before communism and the truth about the revolution It will tell of the opportunities and freedom that are no longer a part of life under communism His lover and muse Olga will figure prominently in the bookWhen the West gets wind of the novel they immediately start to set in motion plans to smuggle the novel out of the USSR translate it for distribution in other countries and then ultimately smuggle the finished copies back into the hands of the people of Russia The novel was banned from publication and distribution in Russia One of my favorite uotes

notes of the men in charge of operations with no input into what goes on One woman Irina is singled out as being useful for the tasks associated with smuggling the novel out of Russia She was brought up speaking the language fluently as her mother was Russian She is taught at length about covert operations first by her boss Teddy and then later by another agent Sally with whom there is an immediate connection The sections on the East deal not only with Boris but with Olga who suffered the fate of 3 years in a labor camp for her association with Pasternak Boris has a wife and two children but we don t really get to know much about her except that she allowed Boris to keep his mistress as long as he spent his writing time at the country house with herThere is romance and love family and commitments involving the characters in the US and in the East There are also strong opinions on loyalty to one s government but even so to the rights of an individual to speak write and

The Secrets We Kept Free download ê 5 Ries are pulled out of the typing pool at the CIA and given the assignment of a lifetime Their mission to smuggle Doctor Zhivago out of the USSR where no one dare publish it and help Pasternak's magnum opus make its way into print around the world Glamorous and sophisticated Sally. Taking place during the pinnacle of the Cold War accomplished and well educated women were relegated to the typing pool at the CIA by the old boy network while their male counterparts began careers Two uniue women whom excel at keeping secrets become spies tasked with obtaining the manuscript of Dr Zhivago for publication in the west since the Soviet State finds the content offensive and will not publish Moving between the east and the west there are two love stories dangerous missions and much soul searching Exciting doesn t begin to describe this meticulously researched and dramatic journey I am astonished that a book this remarkable is a debut Without a doubt it will be a best selling blockbuster Prescott has uite a career ahead of her

The Secrets We Kept Free download ê 5 Forrester is a seasoned spy who has honed her gift for deceit all over the world using her magnetism and charm to pry secrets out of powerful men Irina is a complete novice and under Sally's tutelage uickly learns how to blend in make drops and invisibly ferry classified document. Well I made it up to the 62% point until I flung this book into the dnf pile I am pretty annoyed that what I thought I was reading a spy drama concerning the bringing of the book Dr Zhivago to the west and publishing it as a cautionary tale against a totalitarian regime became nothing but a chick lit storyWhat is happening to the historical fiction genre when fictional characters are so included that they ruin a wonderful premise and make it into something that is barely historical and majorly fiction The inclusion of a current trend into each and every story line tends to make the book become ordinary and sometimes makes me think an author must check off PC boxes in order for their story to be told So no recommendation on this one from me Jan and I read it together and she was smart and bailed out before me
