I recently read the novel by Stephen Miller entitled Field of Mars. It took me a while since it is such a large tome but it was well worth the time. From the moment Miller thrust me into 1913 Russia, I sensed that I was going to get a glimpse into a world that I had never seen. And I wasn’t wrong.

Miller introduces us to Pyotr Ryzhkov - a middle-aged, tired Russian policeman. Ryzhkov is on the scene when a young girl, dressed only in a night shift, falls from a window to her death. No one cares
I really enjoyed the book except for the ending. I like a happy ending where everybody lives happily everafter. I didn't really care for the character of the prince so the epilogue to me was "why are we ending with him"? Did the starcrossed lovers ever end up together?
