|Plot Summary of The Russians are coming!|
|"Set in small-town America, the novel's main characters, six Russian newcomers, provide a fresh perspective of a close-knit college community.
Two couples, one child, and a single woman make up the core group. The story follows them and offers to the reader the unique opportunity to explore not only the surface differences between Russian and American lifestyles, but the more profound similarities.
Narrowed to a specific fourteen-month time frame, but enhanced with flashbacks and epilogue, the novel shows everyday life in both countries."
