Product Info

Nora Lourie Percival emigrated from Russia at the end of the Revolution and finally arrived in the United States in 1922. She grew up in New York City and graduated from Barnard College during the troubled decade before World War II. Her later life brought her to seek out the story of her traumatic childhood, when she was a witness to history. After years of research and remembrance, and the fall of the Iron Curtain, the tale has now been told. Weather of the Heart - - A Child's Journey Out of Revolutionary Russia, by Nora Lourie Percival is a captivating memoir cast as creative non-fiction that takes the reader along on a journey that spans cultures and decades.  We connected Percival (while in her seventies!) with a tour of Russia that took her back to Samara, the city of her birth.  The Boone, NC author published this, her first book, while in her eighties.  And she continues to busy herself with writing despite the fact that she will soon be 100 years old!  This is an extraordinary book coming from an extraordinary lady--treat yourself to a fascinating read!
