It's Russia in the 1960s. Elena and her teenage son have a choice to make about which ship to take to escape KGB threats. They flip a coin (hence the title) to decide between America or England. Listeners are then treated to alternating chapters portraying their lives in each country. Narrator Richard Armitage successfully voices a Russian accent for the lead characters while doing British, American, and assorted other accents for the many secondary characters. Listeners may have to work a bit to get into the rhythm of the two parallel plots and may find the final chapters a bit confusing when the two stories are brought together. Nevertheless, Armitage provides an engaging listening experience. E.Q. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2018]
