Enchanting family tale with strong mystical elements.

The author rewrote her family history to produce an enchanting story of a family who looped back on itself through time. Also an interesting perspective on Russia during the time of the Bolshevik Revolution. The illustrations are a kick.

I am absolutely blown away by the research that it must have taken to write such a complex and compelling story. This is one of the best Historical Fiction novels I have ever read. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is the story of twins who travel in time between pre-revolution Russia and modern-day California. This is a great read and I loved it!

Read as part of SPFBO 5, originally posted at Thoughts Stained With Ink:

This was an unfortunate case of, "It's not you, it's me." The writing was pretty decent and I thought the Russian influences--especially with being set during the Bolshevik Revolution, a time period that has always fascinated me--to be really intriguing, so I was definitely curious about this novel going in. However, there were quite a few time jumps between past and present in the sections that I read, so I didn't feel like

“Societies continuously try to recreate themselves — shared holidays, shared news, shared traditions, shared language, shared music, shared myths, shared victories, and shared griefs. Shared origins… So by telling each other stories, we recreate ourselves over and over again. Where do we come from? Where are we going? Who are our heroes? Who are the villains? These stories pass our values as a society from one generation to the next. It’s how we understand each other.” 0 likes
“Short stories are very different from novel-length works. From the structure point of view, there are fewer characters, no subplots, and a lot less description of the setting and the characters populating the story. A short story simply doesn’t have room for world building… obviously. You grab the story with the first few words and don’t let go or digress for a minute. There is no room for exposition… or pretty descriptions of fashion or cool explanations of scientific principles on which the story is based or commentary of how computer interfaces changed in the future. A novel has room to think, to orchestrate multiple melodies on a theme, whereas a short story is a driven commentary on a single cord.” 0 likes
