A Train To Potevka, Review
I just finished reading a book that my Dad recommended, called A Train to Potevka by Mike Ramsdell. Altough it is a novel, in the fact that he had to change or not be specific in dates, names, and some certain details; it really is a true history of his experiences not only in the USSR during the early nineties, but also his experiences leading up to the life changing days spent in Potevka . A Train to Potevka, An American Spy in Russia is more than meets the eye. Mike Ramsdell's book is more than your typical spy novel of espionage, near misses and getaways. It is a story of realizing the importance of faith in our lives. Realizing that faith, in not just the hard times, but in our everyday life. No matter who rules the land where we live, what is inside us, faith, hope, and love, can not be truely be taken away! As Anne Frank said, "In spite of everything I still believe people are really good at heart."
