About the Book

Ekaterina is the saga of a precocious child who matures into a strong-willed, beautiful, and talented White Russian emigree who fights for the freedom to live her own life amidst war, bigotry, and personal loss. Challenged from the moment of her birth, Ekaterina travels from Russia to China to the Philippines and eventually the United States. At each step of her journey, she alternates between victim and heroine but remains a perpetual foreigner in strange lands. Banishment, an unplanned child, men - kind and cruel, death, war, communism, and civil rights consume her. Based on a true story, Ekaterina’s tale is one of tragedy and triumph within the sweeping global political, military, and social changes of the twentieth century. At its core, Ekaterina is a story of loyalty, love, and survival.
