Janna Yeshanova MA, MEd, PCC is the self-published author of a great historical romance which tells a true story. Love Is Never Past Tense is an old-fashioned love story with an original twist of modern history and intrigue woven in.
Love Is Never Past Tense is a true story of the closing days in the Soviet Union as told by an estranged couple whose lives are shaken by the country's collapse. It shows how lives were twisted by world changing events, how political turmoil pushed them onto different continents, and how they managed to reconnect years later. Just as Doctor Zhivago is a Russian Romance set at the opening chapters of the Soviet era, Love Is Never Past Tense uses a second chance romance to show its closing days.
On December 6, 1987, a crowd of 250,000 people demonstrated in front of the White House to demand that Gorbachev (who was visiting at the time) allow Soviet Jews a path to immigration. This protest helped open a window of opportunity.
She and her family became part of that immigration, but the opportunity was short-lived. Invitations and approvals were needed and the door to the United States was closed again for those whose exit visas were stamped after September 30, 1989. My visa, which she still has, is dated September 28.
Janna left the Soviet Union as an adult shortly before it disappeared. Back there, she taught college level Russian Language and Literature and had a wonderful opportunity to direct a play with her students.
Janna is a dynamic and powerful life coach, premier trainer and motivational speaker. Compared to the Energizer Bunny by one of her international clients, she leverages her passion and engaging style to help people overcome adversity and spark the possibilities of their lives.
