Summary
A long-lost letter links two disparate characters, each searching for meaning against seemingly insurmountable odds. One is a Russian world chess champion who has turned to dissident politics. The other is an American woman who finds a copy of the letter her late father had written to the young chess champion, to which he'd never received adequate response
Summary
Abandoning her life when her father succumbs to Huntington's disease, Massachusetts native Irina discovers an unanswered letter from her father to an internationally renowned chess champion and political dissident, whom she decides to visit in Russia
