So we got this series, right? It's called The Russians, right? So what are we going to do with it? How about adding an American to the mix!


Okay, I'm sorry but this really upsets me. These novels are supposed to be entirely about Russian history. Why do we need other countries coming in? If it was about Russians immigrating to America or the similarities between Russia and America during that time period or even a series from the start about an American learning to survive in Russia, th
The ending was unremarkable, but a good story and I'll be starting the next one pretty soon! ;-)
This book was a good story and did a good job of transitioning to Marianna from Anna. I am waiting for more meat to the story that I think will come with the following books. I have enjoyed seeing the Marianna is a mixture of Katrina and Anna's personalities. It is a little sad that so many people are wanting to use Marianna for their own benefit.
This is an excellent fiction series but the absence of former co-author Michael Philips is noticeable; I prefer his style of writing. Still I will finish the series because it's a good story and because I enjoy the historical research it contains.
I just can't say enough about this series. I'll definitely be reading all of them but since I have to get them at the library, will wait to start the next one when my schedule's not quite so full.
I read this over 10 years ago. Judith Pella was one of my top 3 authors of the time. Christian historical fiction - a wonderful genre!
good historical tie-ins, not all problems solved, not terribly exciting, continue Russia series
