About this product
- DescriptionEscape from Soviet Georgia was only possible for young women in one way before the late 1990s: marriage. But what kind of marriage? What kind of chance is Annie prepared to take if the man of her dreams is t available? Can she pay the price for things going wrong? Must she grin and bear Soviet rule? Or does she love her freedom more? Later, trapped in the role of domestic drudge in the patriarchal society of Costa Rica, can she make her peace with this new life or must she find a new one again? Are freedom and happiness sweeter when you've paid a high price for them, or do they both end in bitterness? In Blue Boat on the Beach Katrina Day gives readers the ground truth of the immigrant experience, helping us to understand it in more depth.
- Author BiographyKatrina Day (nee Sajaia) has previously published poetry and an allegoric story, The Silver Bullet: Tour of the Universe. She was born in Tbilisi, Georgia, to Gregory (Grigol) Sajaia, editor-in-chief of the scientific/educational magazine School and Life; and Isabella (Elisashvili), a journalist. Having graduated with a degree in languages she has travelled and is now settled in the UK with her husband. Blue Boat on the Beach is based on her experiences and observations of the people she met when she first travelled to Central America and Canada. Her move to Costa Rica made a lasting impression, even though at the time she was not aware of this. Although she constructed her book based on fictional characters, there is a true likeness with regards to her surroundings then. Katrina Day lives and works in Berkshire.
