About book: I read this book in more than a week, which for 350 pages is quite a long time for me. This is because despite the aura of mystery, Communism and international spying, I never found it fascinating enough to read for long stretches at a time. Fastidious is probably the word that describes it better. It seems that Shamim Sarif wants you to think exactly what she herself thinks about all her characters. Her descriptions are very detailed, with many adjectives, but apply mainly to the characters' psychology, which means you get very little descriptions of Khrushchev-era Russia for. This novel relies more on the narrative and characters than on the plot, but that is harder to do right and Shamim Sarif did it brilliantly. This is a book that wil get you emotionally invested and remind you why you love reading so much. I would recommend it to everyone!

Despite The Falling Snow book. a perfectly balanced novel of love and tragedy. Despite the fact that the story was a little bit predicted, it is an amazing book! I love the way Shamim writes, how she describes every emotion and characterizes a character. It is impossible not to feel anything while reading this book.
The action of Despite the Falling Snow moves between present day Boston and 1950s Moscow.

Here he has built a successful business; and here he has managed to bury the tragic memories surrounding his charismatic late wife, Katya - or so he believes.
A sign of the times for sure, but after years in hibernation the Cold War thriller is back, and the latest addition to the genre is Despite the Falling Snow, adapted for the screen from her own novel by Briton Shamim Sarif. Taking the lead role is Swedish actress Rebecca Ferguson, who after being a soap opera star at home shot to prominence in the latest Mission Impossible movie after catching Tom Cruise’s eye for her turn in the BBC’s The White Queen. I think it’s just super king cool to be a spy, isn’t it? The stakes are so high. You get to flip from a good side to a bad side.
