She now lives in Edinburgh.Review:
"A memoir redolent of storied Russia—steaming samovars and frigid sledge-rides, the scent of white birch logs burning in the fireplace, festive religious holidays and balalaika music. . . . The memory of her lamented home . . . grips Fraser, and will the reader as well." —Publishers Weekly
"Possesses a nostalgic picture postcard quality." —Library Journal
