"During World War II, Ivan Demidov is made a Hero of the Soviet Union, the Red Army's highest award for bravery and an honour that secures him both society's respect and some modest privileges. But by the time perestroika dawns in the eighties, the glory of Soviet victory has faded from the collective memory, and Ivan begins to lose his way in the new, forward-looking climate. In contrast, Ivan's daughter Olya appears to be thriving; as an interpreter with the Moscow International Trade Centre, she has access to a prosperous, metropolitan lifestyle far beyond her parents' dreams. But Olya's work is not all it seems, and she slowly begins to realise that for her, the price of success may be higher than she is willing to pay. A Hero's Daughter is an absorbing drama of ordinary people whose faith and aspirations are betrayed by a system that ruthlessly exploits even those it claims to benefit."--BOOK JACKET.
