Hotel Moscow is a well-written, supsenseful, and mostly accurate book that takes place in Russia right after the fall of Communism. It's easy to care about the characters, who are well-developed. I also appreciate the much-needed perspective on the continuation of anti-Semitism, and some people's denial about it. I hope that this book will open people's eyes about this. My only quibble is with her broad brush of criticism of Americans and fellow Jews who allegedly didn't do what they could to help the victims ot the World War II Holocaust. It's easy to second-guess people when we sit here in 2015, with the benefit of Social Media, and when ordinary citizens have more influence. But just exactly what could an ordinary citizien do during the 1940s, about something happening in another country? Our political leaders are another matter, but without benefit of the internet and international outrage, most people had no power over such things back then. Also it would have been nice of her to mention some who did help the Jewish victims, and even gave up their lives for it, such as theologican Deitrich Bonhoeffer. Not to mention an "ordinary" couple Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus, who went to Germany thesmelves, to rescue Jewish children. Otherwise, it was a very good book.

check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings I am not sure if I would classify this as historical fiction as it takes place in 1993, but at times I had to remind myself that this was taking place just 22 years ago. Brooke Fielding, is on a forced vacation due to her job, so instead of going to relax on a beach she goes to Russia to help women gain some business knowledge as Russia is opening the market and leaving communism behind. Brooke has entered Russia and is only there for 7 days, but from day 1 to day 7 it was a huge journey for the country. I enjoyed seeing Brooke rebuild herself and "come of age" while Russia falls apart - I don't usually talk about themes, but this one really worked for me. There were still many moments that I had to look up 1993 in Russia and kept reminding myself that this was fiction but could really be non-fiction.
