Sarasota FL – WEBWIRE

A courageous woman’s story about women’s struggles with life in Russia.

Baltic Winds: Testimony of a Soviet Attorney, is Simona Pipko’s nonfiction book, which gives the readers her accounts as a prominent Soviet defense attorney, her family, friends, and clients. Her book is nothing like you would expect about life in Russia.

Her book gives readers a different picture and first-hand observation about people from different ethnic groups and reveals the terrible conditions they live in. It also gives a woman’s point of view of the struggles Russian women encounter in everyday life, their treatment and status as second-class citizens, and their numerous abortions, domestic violence, and sexual abuse.

Her story covers the period from the 1950s through the ‘90s, where she reflects on the lives she has lived on two continents, from Leningrad through Tallinn, Rome, and finally New York. As her book goes along, we are taken along the struggles and adversities she had been through while in Russia, as a Soviet attorney. She finally was able to travel west to America, where she was able to establish true and heartfelt social connections with people, this time Americans, in her new profession as a teacher.
Baltic Winds: Testimony of a Soviet Attorney is a must-read for readers who have a vague idea about Russian life and women’s plight in Socialist Russia. The 2017 Frankfurt Intl Book Fair last October 11, 2017, gave us the opportunity to find from the shelves this interesting and enlightening book and many other good reads.
