 Leonid and Nadya are treated as cosmonaut heroes in the Soviet Union in 1964, two of the first humans in space. But it was a state-sponsored deception; their twins were sent to space and never returned and now the earth-bound twins are paraded around as evidence of socialist victory. In this beautiful, soul-searching novel, Leonid grapples with the supposed loss of his brother, guilt at remaining behind, and also questions of faith where he is constantly reminded of the heavens in a country that has outlawed God. This novel is a tender look at the space program, and the family and home that is created in the wake and destruction of the one that is left behind.
