DescriptionAt age 50, Michelle Carter, a married mother of two adult children, left her job as editor of a suburban newspaper in the San Francisco Bay area to move to Russia for a year as a United States Information Agency Journalist-in-Residence. There she worked with newspaper editors who struggled to adapt to the new concepts of press freedom and a market economy. She became an on-the-scene witness to the second great Russian revolution. At the same time, she embarked on a personal journey that wrenched her life in a way she could never have anticipated when she accepted her husband's challenge to take the assignment.

About the Author
Michelle A Carter is a professional journalist with a 30-year career in daily newspapering and a 12-year stint as a journalism instructor at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont, California. From Under the Russian Snow is the second book to grow out of her experiences in the former Soviet Union. The first, Children of Chernobyl, was co-written with Michael J. Christensen.
"Carter's book certainly delivers the promised depiction of her professional efforts in a dramatically changing country at an extraordinary historical time... From Under the Russian Snow provides insights into a different culture and into people like ourselves, with families, friends, jobs, struggles, losses, and resilience." --Phoebe Tussey, www.storycirclebookreviews.org/
