8. Lara Prescott: The Secrets We Kept

Fiction meets fact in Lara Prescott’s debut novel The Secrets We Kept, which combines a legendary literary love story with rich historical detail to tell the true story of how the manuscript for Doctor Zhivago was smuggled out of Russia.

The story of the decades-long love affair between Boris Pasternak and his mistress and muse, Olga (the inspiration for Zhivago’s heroine, Lara) is entwined with that of two American women whose lives of extraordinary intrigue and risk are entangled with the history of the CIA in this literary thriller.
