Canadian-Latvian author Ilze Bērziņš, author of Happy Girl, A True Love Story, Silver Shoes and a number of murder mysteries, is about to release her new book, Ten Days in the Soviet Republic of Jaunķemeransk.
The book’s back cover blurb reads: “Where does one go to cure the incurable?
Europe has spas that offer exotic treatments—mud baths, sulphur baths, electro-pulse therapy, salt rooms, peat moss applications, and much more.
Looking for a remedy for her osteoarthritis our protagonist finds herself back in her native Latvia, at a Russian enclave and a patient of a Soviet-style spa called Jaunķemeri.
Along with her treatments and run-ins with hostile Russians, she becomes involved in a secret political plot. Will she uncover the mystery which threatens to cast the spa into infamy and which endangers her own life?
Read this lively, informative, true-life account of one woman’s dogged search for better health—and you’ll find yourself sharing her often hilarious, hair raising adventure.”.
The book will be launched October 1 and published by Albert Street Press. For more information see the author’s website.
