Translated from the Russian, Three Apples is a story of an isolated, close-knit village community in the Armenian mountains, where all younger people have long since left or were lost to the famine and war, and only the older folks remain—until a budding romance between the only two single residents shakes everything up and breathes new life into this dying village. Soul-warming and endlessly charming, this fable-like novel is a trip to the countryside unreservedly worth taking. —Ksenia
