I bring you Da Russian novel:
So here's another true story, but this one is different. This one is for lovers about lovers...ooh-la-la.

Serge and Janna's chance meeting at a Black Sea beach sparks a passionate romance and a quick marriage. Serge's parents, suspicious of Janna's motives and heritage, force him to break up with her. As the Soviet Union collapses, revealing ethnic and social pressures, each faces danger separately. Serge drowns in self doubt, his life spiralling down and in. Janna plots a dangerous exodus to America with her mother and daughter. Years pass, stirring old emotions, and changing circumstances give their love a second chance. Janna Yeshanova tells a life story, providing a very personal view of political and social change.
A remarkable second chance romance told with amazing realism in the style of a classic Russian novel.

Love Is Never Past Tense... was published first in Russia and Ukraine in 2009, and is now available in English. It is a fascinating adventurous romance based on a true story.
A splash was heard. It was a wave that went over the top of the gunwales, and the boat immediately became heavier. “Two more such waves and everything will be over.” The old man spoke in catalepsy, and his hand convulsively stretched out to the ropes. But they had become wet and did not want to be untied. Besides, to unwind them, time was needed. There wasn’t any more time left. The old man began to take out handfuls of water: the instinctive animal actions of a dying person. “The ropes should be cut. But with what? I threw out everything.” Panic possessed him, although he understood that panicking was not allowed. But there was no decision. A chance for rescue did not remain. There was only a sinking boat, a stone, and himself, fatally tied to this stone.
