Description

Twelve-year-old Ivan lives behind the Iron Curtain in Communist-controlled Moscow. He and his family are Christians-a dangerous faith to hold in a country which glorifies blind loyalty to the state and often relegates pastors and political dissenters to work camps or insane asylums.

In Ivan and the American Journey (Book 6 in Behind the Iron Curtain: The Ivan Series), Ivan is shocked to learn that he’s won the All-Moscow History Prize. He didn’t think that the government would let a Christian win the prize, but apparently the Soviet Union is trying to present a “religiously tolerant” face to the West.

Along with the prize comes a five-week trip to study in America. Ivan is exuberant, but he still needs to watch his step. He knows that the adults accompanying the prize-winners are Soviet informers, and his family will suffer for any mistakes he makes. When he comes face to face with a Soviet defector, Ivan must make a nerve-wracking decision. Should he help him defect and thus risk consequences to his family back in Moscow? Paperback, 129 pages.
