Growing up in 1930s Brooklyn, Florence Fein will do anything to escape the confining values of her family so when a new job and a love affair lead her to Moscow, she doesn't think twice about abandoning America. Years later, working on a transcontinental oil deal in Moscow, her son, Julian begins to discover who his mother really was and what she became. As he traces a thread from Depression-era America, through the collective housing and work camps of Stalin's USSR, to the
glittering, oil-rich world of New Russia, Julian finally begins to understand the role he has played - as a father, and as a son. The Patriots is both a compelling portrait of the entangled relationship between America and Russia, and the story of three generations of one family caught between the forces of history and the consequences of past choices.
