Print copies available in catalog

Zoya Andropova, a young girl without family and a recent refugee from the Soviet Union, struggles to fit in at a New Jersey boarding school during the 1920s. Zoya later becomes curator of the school’s exotic plant conservatory and leads a solitary existence until she falls for Russian author Leo Orlov, a married professor with elevated status. This artfully written noir is full of clever word play, twists and surprises.
