The golden skies, the translucent twilight, the white nights, all hold the promise of youth, of love, of eternal renewal. The war has not yet touched this city of fallen grandeur, or the lives of two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha Metanova, who share a single room in a cramped apartment with their brother and parents. Their world is turned upside down when Hitler's armies attack Russia and begin their unstoppable blitz to Leningrad. Yet there is light in the darkness. Tatiana meets Alexander, a brave young officer in the Red Army. Strong and self-confident, yet guarding a mysterious and troubled past, he is drawn to Tatiana--and she to him. Starvation, desperation, and fear soon grip their city during the terrible winter of the merciless German siege. Tatiana and Alexander's impossible love threatens to tear the Metanova family apart and expose the dangerous secret Alexander so carefully protects--a secret as devastating as the war itself--as the lovers are swept up in the brutal tides that will change the world and their lives forever.… (more)

    Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (littlebear514)
    littlebear514: Although the stories are COMPLETELY different; the writing is of the same quality and the stories are both deeply involved.

This book will thrill you, then break your heart. ( )

When it was about the history of the time, it was good. When it was about the romance, it was awful. ( )

Lots of angst and drama and the characters got to me a bit but the author really knows how to write and wove a beautiful background to a heartbreaking time. ( )

I loved this book, right up there with Gone With the Wind and Thorn Birds. Classic, epic, love story. ( )
  SharleneMartinMoore | Apr 24, 2021 |
I've been reading this book late into the night, completely enraptured by the love story of Tatiana and Alexander, and gripped by the vivid, dark story of war torn Russia in the 1940's. Ms. Simons grabbed me with her descriptive narration of Russia, the disintegration of humanity in the midst of war, hunger, sickness. She frustrates me with the endless back and forth between Tashia and Shura, but you can't help but root for their love and happiness.
