После прихода Сталина к власти СССР начал стремительно превращаться в тоталитарное государство, готовое расправляться как с собственным населением, так и с проклятыми империалистами из других стран.

Но поначалу об этом мало кто догадывался. Советские правители тщательно оберегали свои тайны и знали, что делать с излишне любопытными гражданами.

Yet again Baryakina takes us on a wild ride as we continue to follow the lives of Klim and Nina and many other characters. Baryakina is skilled at making all of her characters come to life on the page, and the numerous characters and plots always keep me reading, wondering what will happen next.

So basically, Bulgakov meets James Patterson, and both are stunned.

Come for the swift, thriller-like plot. Stay for the fascinating Russian-scary-stuff history lesson. Or was it the other way around?

Freshly translated, and now available to the American reader.

Elvira Baryakina created another masterpiece.

I could not wait to read another book of Russian Treasures series yet I delayed to read it because this is the last one so far.
The two first books were great, but this one is even better (if it is possible)!
I am glad to see that Elvira Baryakina created another masterpiece. This time the main characters Nina and Klim back to USSR.
Prepare yourself for the dive into that dangerous era. The danger is real not only for the main characters.

Третья часть захватывает с первых же строк. Герои не вместе, но все равно связаны. Страшные подробности жизни в СССР: чистки, уплотнения, доносы, недоверие, кто не с нами, тот против... Но в этом кошмаре люди продолжают любить, верить и делать добро. Увлекательный сюжет, полный приключений и сильных чувств.

The third part captures from the first lines. The heroes are not together, but still connected. Terrible details of life in the USSR: cleansing, denunciations, distrust, who is not with us,

A gripping story

A bitter sweet romance in a setting of desperate life in
post-revolution Russia. Reminds me of the novel and film Dr Zivago. Can't say I truly enjoyed this book, but I couldn't put it down! Very well plotted and written.

W "Burzliwej epoce" mamy dokładnie wszystko, to co powinien mieć dobry romans historyczny, czyli ciekawy wątek miłosny połączony z faktami. U Baryakiny bez trudu można odnaleźć te dwie rzeczy. Poza uczuciowymi perypetiami głównych bohaterów, niezwykle skrupulatnie pokazuje kolejne ważne i przełomowe wydarzenia rozgrywające się w omawianym okresie, zachowując przy tym zgodność z prawdą historyczną. Nic nie upiększa i nie próbuje niczego tłumaczyć, pokazując zarówno życie w tamtym czasie, jak i ...more

My name is Elvira Baryakina, and I write historical novels set in the first half of the 20th century.

Whenever I discover a fascinating new topic, I find myself on a journey leading me to places as disparate as Moscow, Buenos Aires, Shanghai and Los Angeles.

My goal is to collect small fragments of stories that have been scattered across different countries and reconstruct a chain of neglected
