Who Is to Blame? A Russian Riddle by Jane Marlow (River Grove Books)

Offered by JaneMarlow (author): Reviews are welcomed but not required

Description: Serious historical fiction for serious readers. Set in the vast grainfields of 1800s Russia, this 25-year saga contrasts the haves and the have-nots. When Tsar Alexander II emancipates Russia’s serfs, he transforms the Empire’s economic base and upends its social structure for both slaves and masters.

Star-crossed lovers Elizaveta and Feodor are serfs who are forbidden to marry and are trapped in inhumane poverty. Once liberated from the shackles of serfdom, can they find a way to build a life together?

Their master, Count Maximov, not only faces financial ruin because of the serfs’ emancipation, but he must also contend with his wife’s mental instability and his gadabout son’s decadence. How will Russia’s nobility cope as their life of privilege and gay carelessness takes its final bow?

In this sobering tale sprinkled with whimsy and heart, the reader is left to decide who is blame for life’s hardships and heartaches. In many cases, the finger of blame points in numerous directions.

Book is soft cover
