Set during the end of the Cold War, this book is the perfect combination of historical fiction and romance. When Laura travels to Russia and "accidentally" falls in love (after she is told not to fall for the natives) she struggles to find the truth behind the frozen wall of a Russian city and the mysteries behind a certain Russian boy. Meanwhile, their love must be kept a secret from the University staff and the Soviet officials because a local and a foreigner being together could endanger them both.
