Irina's father was killed by the Russian government, and now Irina goes to bed sad and hungry. Tatiana is despearate and decides that marriage to an American man will ensure her daughter's security.
But when Tatiana arrives in the United States, she finds that the marriage she expected was only a cruel joke arranged by Gabe Salinger's immature twin brother. Gabe has no interest in marrying an unknown Russian woman. Still, Gabe is a good man, and he opens his home to Tatiana and her daughter--and Tatiana can't keep herself from falling in love with him. If only. . .
As a Christian, Gabe will not marry a woman who does not believe in Christ. Tatiana, however, cannot forgive God for the loss of her husband. But if she is to stay in America, she has to marry someone. . .

Top Customer Reviews
Twin A sets up Twin B with a bride-to-be from Russia via an internet beginning. Oops, the beautiful Russian blond has a child. The details of the difficulty of gaining a Russian wife for an American are real. My son, once a Hoosier, married a Russian, and the requirements and red-tape are strict. Coble provides a realistic situation, even though, because it's listed as a Romance novel, the outcome is somewhat predictable. Romance novels are supposed to end happy.
5-stars are warranted due to the process of love vs loss, and many mixed emotions between characters, all so enticingly written by the author. The book holds your interest, and leaves you celebrating the finale. Coble gets you where you expected to be at the end, but she makes you take a road less traveled.
Another positive, since the book is now available secondhand, it makes it much easier & less expensive. At least at our county library, Colleen Coble books are always checked out. Look over her other books. "Anathema" also takes place in the author's home state, Indiana, just like "From Russia with Love."
A strong man with love for and commitment to God. Following His path when all he wants to do is not in obedience to His word.
A deep love for a woman and child. Placing it all in God's capable hands. The heartache that ensues.
What does a destitute woman do when she has no one to turn to. After all, her bitterness won't allow her to turn to the God of her dead husband and brother. Why didn't God protect them when they were standing up for the right to worship Him? Why did he let them die?
Wow, what a read!!
Tatiana Lazarenk and her three-year-old daughter Irina are barely surviving in Russia. Tatiana is a widow whose husband was killed while participating in a Christian demonstration. She doesn't earn much money in the kitchen she's working in, and sometimes Irina goes to sleep crying from hunger because they just don't have any food. Tatiana and Irina are overly thin from lack of food, and Irina appears much younger than she is due to malnutrition. Tatiana doesn't believe that God cares for her. How could he?
Tatiana decides to post on a website advertising herself as a mail order bride. Mike Salinger from America is interested . . . on behalf of his twin brother Gabe, unbeknownst to him. He visits Tatiana in Russia in Gabe's name to set the process in motion. But Mike doesn't inform Gabe until the day Tatiana's plan is scheduled to arrive because he's nervous about what he's done. Naturally, Gabe is very upset and wants nothing to do with this plan. But Tatiana feels she needs to find a husband for Irina's sake, and needs a place to stay for the length of her 90-day visa. The Salinger family feel they owe her that much.
Gabe Salinger is a strong Christian. He and his brother own an architectural company and live in a mansion with their mother and a housekeeper. Theirs is a warm, caring family. Gabe is understandably angry with his brother about the unasked-for mail order bride. Besides, he feels marrying Tatiana is not even a possibility for him since she is not a Christian!
