When Russian refugees Victoria and her husband, Felix, embarked on their cross-country adventure, they planned to travel one day for each year of their fifty-year marriage. In Double Exposure, Victoria offers a memoir that moves between past and present to chronicle her journey to the United States. Within the celebration of their anniversary, Victoria shares intimate stories of her transformation into womanhood and motherhood, reflecting on her family and life under Soviet rule. And as she meets Felix, a love story unfolds that takes them around the world and around their new country, together for fifty years. Double Exposure is a sincere account of many hilarious misadventures, frustrating mistakes, and heartbreaking times on the way to freedom. This cross-country journey provides not only a trip through history, but also a personal glimpse into tragedies and triumphs in the life of a woman, a family, a country.
