About the Author
Emiko Lyovin was born in 1941 in Tokyo, Japan. After graduating from Sophia University, she married Valentina's youngest son, Anatole Lyovin, who taught linguistics at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Just before he retired, Anatole was ordained as a Russian Orthodox priest. After twenty-eight years of teaching Japanese at Hawaii's prestigious private institution Punahou School, Emiko retired. She lives in Honolulu and now serves as Father Anatole's matushka at his church in Honolulu.

A family history that reads like a novel is a treasure that most people do not have. I am impressed by all the detail, research and memory recall that had to be done to write Valentina's life story.
