Twenty-year-old Arina Ivanov is not just a beautiful Russian woman, she is very smart. Her older brothers return from a day of ocean fishing in the western Arctic Ocean with a secret. If the secret is what they expect, they will be able to leave Russia and follow their dreams in the United States. But should they keep the secret from their parents?
A lie to Captain Dimitri, head of a Russian patrol boat, forces the young Ivanovs to confide in their parents. Eventually, seven people are involved in the plot to leave Eastern Russia and find refuge in Alaska, but they must solve many problems while maintaining secrecy.
Bush pilot Dan Newcomb (hero of Detour in Oregon) becomes involved with the Ivanovs’ escape, pulling a few strings, providing unexpected assistance to the Ivanov family.

About the Author
A sight, a dream, or something he hears will sometimes be enough to give birth to a story. When stuck with a bout of writer's block, walking, or working on home renovations will lift the fog and cause him to rush to the computer to continue his tale, or occasionally start something new.
Growing up in a small community, attending large universities, and living in the Northwest, Midwest, and Southwest have provided many experiences which contribute to his story telling. Averill's stories contain adventure, mystery, a little romance, and most important, a happy ending.
