Description

Set against a backdrop of the collapse of the Soviet Empire, The Bride From Moscow follows the travails of a young Russian woman who seeks happiness and a better life in Australia. Like many other women from war-torn countries, Natasha is lured by the promise of a better life and a happy marriage with a Western man she hardly knows.  However, shea has escaped the political and cultural upheaval in her own country only to find more tragedy in Melbourne. Here she
finds herself unwittingly tangled in a web of intrigue involving reptile and bird smuggling, mistrust from the authorities and a mystery of her husband disappearance, that turned out to be a murder mystery.
She finds refuge only in a women’s shelter and must struggle to survive and prove her integrity. It is her destiny that is at stake, and the novel climaxes as Natasha takes matters into her own hands.

The novel turns upon Natasha’s dilemma: to reveal the information that can damage the people who could hurt her, or forever play the ignorant victim. Both choices are fraught with danger and consequence. Throughout all that drama Natasha must draw on her inherent honesty and commitment to a cause. Her growing sense of self is assisted by a freer atmosphere. Now she is capable to make a decision that earlier would be unthinkable to her.

First time in her life Natasha experiences how it feels to be free from fear. She has done what she believes is fair towards her new country and to herself. And then her life has changed dramatically – again – when she rekindles her love with Boris.

Meanwhile her son, now a young man, falls in love with Melissa, a farmer’s daughter and has gone to living with her and working on a farm.

The elaborate plot and rapid changes of events and sceneries will keep you on your toes until the very unexpected end.

  1. Rachel Sandey, Hawthorn, Victoria

    The first novel by Natasha Lukin, written in English – The Bride from Moscow – is very engaging read that kept me in suspense. The moving story of a young woman, migrated from Russia to Australia in the 90s with her teenage son is a captivating journey of survival, self-discovery and enormous courage. The main character, whose name is Natasha – same as the authors name, very common for Russians, in a short period of time lost her new husband, has been under suspicion of being involved in his murder, discovered the dark secret of the deceased and kept moving ahead with dignity and integrity. I finished reading it in a record time as suspense didn’t allow me to put the book down.

  2. Claudia Pino, Canberra

    The book follows the story of a young woman who married a foreigner in order to escape Russian in turbulent 90s. It is fascinating to observe how she grew stronger and gradually lost her fear from years living in Russia under suppressive regime. The circumstances surrounded her husband’s death forced her to take actions and prove her innocence and then to report a real culprit. Easy engaging read that I much enjoyed.

  3. Peter Hill, Singapore

    Very memorable and thought provoking read. It captures you and keeps you interested. Where the mystery is involved, and then the murder, you have to know the truth, and who did what. It is a mastery to build suspension up, and that is what this book is about.

  4. Miriam Horowitz, Miami

    What a story! It seems to be so much real, although so unreal for all the twists and turns, along the way. This Russian bride has guts to survive and protect her integrity. Plus, the murder mystery line keeps you suspended to the very end.

  5. Roger Baird, 45 y.o.

    I bought this book by chance at the airport and began reading it while waiting for boarding. What shall I say? That was an overseas flight and with a little sleep I managed to finish The Bride from Moscow right before landing at Heathrow airport. The intrigue was well developed, and the characters were convincingly real. Cannot recommend highly enough for lover of a good thriller with a meaning.

  6. Max Logan, Melbourne

    The story of this Russian Bride began unfolding when her new husband showed her old photograph of a young woman. Her uncanny resemblance to Natasha explained Steven’s unusual behaviour. However, it was only a small part of the puzzle. Newcomer to Australia, Natasha suddenly found herself being entangled in a web of deadly intrigues. Absolutely worth reading, real thriller.

  7. Lara Boldin, Melbourne

    The Bride from Moscow is a multi-layered novel. Set against a political background it is a kind of a mail bride’s story. Natasha, the young musician from Russia, found herself in the middle of drama in her knew country, Australia. The plot, its detailed descriptions and some facts made me think that it might be a real story of the author. Sounds to me like that. But in any case the book is a fascinated read. I enjoyed it very much.

  8. Susan Gregory

    Great story, well written, captivating plot. Lots of realistic details. Highly recommend
