Snowdrops is the story of Nick Platt, is a British Lawyer, who when traveling home one night on the train fights off a mugger. The mugger’s intended target, Masha, and her younger sister Katya became a central part of Nick’s life. As Masha and Nick begin to become involved he is introduced to their aunt Tatiana Vladimirovna and finds himself obliged to help out in the sale of her apartment. In general Snowdrops is a substandard book. There is a continual guarantee of action but then it never conveys it.
