MARINA RAY BIO

I was born and lived in the beautiful city, St. Petersburg, Russia. I have firsthand experience living under a communist regime. In the 1980s, Communist party leader Gorbachev started a political movement, called ‘’perestroika,’’ the literal meaning being ‘’restructuring.’’ He called for reformations within the communist party and economic system. Those reforms brought chaos in the country by shaking and changing established laws and policies. During the period of the Communist empire collapsing, Russia plunged into a period of unprecedented crime never seen in its history. Explosions and gunshots were part of life. Bandits organized into gangs; they forced every business owner to pay a portion of their income, they controlled different parts of the city, and they knew where businesses were located. Criminals abducted and tortured disobedient entrepreneurs or the members of their families. If that did not convey the lesson, they would kill. My husband and I were business owners.

TESTIMONIALS

Incredible life journey of a strong woman. Fascinating to read the book, which paired with many photographs, including photographs of Marina Ray herself and book’s characters. The book promises to be a timeless keepsake that will help readers awaken to life’s wondrous possibilities and discover a deeper connection to the inner strength. The Price of Red Roses diligently organized into 13 chapters ─ each one representing a powerful step in Marina Ray’s life and introduced with an intimate, personal essay by author herself. This is a wonderful theme, with advance functionality of BuddyPress, simple, unique and advance, I hope this theme will win the competition.

Arnold Layne, writer

I know Marina Ray for many years, as well as some characters from the book. This incredible book reveals shocking examples of human baseness and author’s unbelievable strength battling for righteousness and justice. In addition to a description of personal conflicts, author’s memoir brings up issues, of which many people don’t dare to speak or write. I couldn’t stop reading this book.

Lana Stolnikova, Broker, Sutton Group Admiral Realty Inc. Brokerage

I highly recommend reading this book to everybody. It’s hard to imagine that all described events really happened to the author. I met Marina Ray long time ago and know her as cheerful and sociable person. Her courage withstanding life’s tragic twists is amazing and can be an example for others.
