For centuries, poets have argued that unrequited love is love in its strongest form. From Afar is a timeless tale of Morgan Stanfield’s search for love in the far northern city of Saint Petersburg, Russia. Leaving the warm climate of Santa Barbara, he embarks on a four-day odyssey where he encounters a Russian beauty, a prostitute, a wise old babushka, an American chauvinist, intellectuals, the Russian mafia, and the ‘face’ of love, and comes to know how love from a distance can be more captivating than love close on hand.
Review by Stormi
This was a very unique read. It was a bit sad and made me feel bad for the man. Love is never easy to find and this book paints that picture easily. I loved all the Russian scenery it gives. It made you feel as if you are really there seeing this world that is so beautiful. I can't say I loved this book, but it was an easy and fast read. It was not my normal read by any means, but it was interesting at times and at other times it was just boring. It gave a look at the life of man trying to find love. In doing so he travels to Russia and looks for love and gets hurt again and again.
