Intro of my first blog

During my studies in the USSR I met a friend (Madeleine) of my mother who had migrated with her Russian prisoner of war husband (Sergey) to Moscow after WWII and upon arrival was exiled to one of the gulags as a deserter. Before going to war Sergey had left behind a child (Vladimir) who became my roommate in the dormitary of Moscow state University, meanwhile Madeleine also had a child (Vincent) from him.Its the story of the revelation of the two step brothers and Madeleine's lonely tragic life and death.
Over forty years these characters have haunted me.
Like a medium or an intermediary, I put their life in writing, instinctively, unknowing the outcome.
It needs editing and publishing but I am impatient to make it known.
