In this compelling and beautifully descriptive novel, the story of a girl in czarist and revolutionary Russia naively believes her privileged lifestyle as the dau. of a prosperous Mennonite Russian overseer cannot be destroyed. In fact, her illusions are cruelly shattered when the Bolsheviks and the Russian peasantry aggressively turn against the affluent German-rooted Mennonites. When most of her family and friends are murdered, she learns the harsh lessons of survival. This historical novel of the Russian Revolution is a reminder of a permanently vanished place, time, and way of life. (373pp. hardcover with dust jacket. Milkweed Ed., 2004.)
