OH MY GOSH!!!! From Russia With Love was one of my all-time favorite Colleen Coble books. I've read her voraciously for years and this one--ooo---stab to the heart loved it! It's romantic qualities are endearing, heartwarming...every I want when I curl up with a good book on a rainy Saturday afternoon. The characters are emotionally deep and inspiring. You'd be CRAZY to pass up this Colleen Coble romance. Crazy, I tell ya. It's a Kindle download well worth your investment.

Colleen Coble sticks to Christian romance in her story, "From Russia with Love." Newer book by Coble have much more murder mystery and suspense involved. This story is a love story, the seeking of relationship, the devotion to a child, and the strict devotion to faith. It's all packed into 170 fast reading pages, but with characters and activities woven together in the same fashion as the newer mystery stories.

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."

"From Russia with Love" is a modern day mail order bride international romance that captures readers immediately and takes them on a whirlwind journey. Author Colleen Coble uses lovable, flawed, relatable characters that touch readers so deeply they will be reaching for a box of kleenexes. I thoroughly enjoyed this story but hated to see it end as that meant saying goodbye to Grace, Gabe, Tatiana, Irina, and the rest of my new friends. Colleen has a gift for writing and never disappoints.

Really enjoyed the historic background and the reality of Russia and then the insights as she and child view America. Liked the minimal Christian influences and the real importance as they live out their faith.

This book is outstanding. I was absolutely thrilled with it.

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!!

From Russia With Love is a contemporary Christian romance by Colleen Coble, published in 2000. This story is set initially in Russia, then in a small town in Indiana.

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!

I really enjoyed this book having lived in Russia for 7 !/2 years in the '90's I could relate to many of the circumstances and cultural aspects.
