    Brave Victims

    The victims 'especially the women' in this novel are heroic in their own unique way. They turn chaos into a struggle for human dignity. I applaud Irene for her novel. I have relatives living in the Ukraine and I have worked in the nuclear industry in the U.S. I used Irene's novel as part of my research for my novel, CHERNOBYL MURDERS.

    nuclear tragedy-'made it easy' to digest

    Irene Zabytko presented an excellent novel based on the worst nuclear (civilian) explosion in the world. In the book, the reader encounters the deep human touches of the survivors of this terribly mishandled occurence, orchestrated by Moscow.

    Awesome book.

    I have read multiple books involving Chernobyl, and this has been by far one if the best- I could not put it down.

    tragic tale about the effects of the Chornobyl nuclear accident

    An excellent portrayal of the Chornobyl catastrophe, as told by an elderly Ukrainian woman living in a village near the nuclear plant. Wonderfully written page turner, couldn't put it down.
