I just received a copy of “Vaclav and Lena” by H. Taner thanks to Fortylicious and Random House. I read this book in two days; I could not get enough of it. The story’s intertwining theme is about magic and illusion and about two young Russian children who grow up together. I enjoyed the way the author used grammatically incorrect language of some of the characters; it made it sound authentic. A very good read from H.Taner debut novel.
