Mother Country by Irina Reyn

Discussion Leader: Judy Goldberg

Nadia’s daily life in Brooklyn is filled with small indignities. The war back home is always at the forefront of her reality. Putin speaks of the “reunification” of Crimea and Russia, the Ukrainian president makes promises about a united Ukraine, while American politicians are divided over immigration. Nadia has been waiting six years for her beloved daughter, whose emigration is being eternally delayed. When Nadia finds out that her daughter has lost access to the medicine she needs to survive, she takes matters into her own hands.
