Read from January 26 to 27, 2011

I was saddened to read some of the reviews calling this story trash. I think having read The Bronze Horseman series about this very tragic time in Russia's history gave me a better understanding and appreciation of what the mother went through, how it haunted her her entire life and made her so hardened and cold and how that affected her daughters and their lives. I loved the fairytale element that was woven throughout and the journey of all of the characters finding themselves and each other. It was an emotional, heartbreaking read for me, shining a light on not only what war, tragedy and loss can do to a person, but what secrets can do to a family.
