This was a hard story to read because there was just not a lot of joy or happiness taking place in this story. But sometimes life is very hard for people, especially the people in Russia during the time this story was written (1880-1182). It is book three in this series and I am definitely hooked and wanting to know what is happening in the life of these people. This story picks up with great anticipation with the marriage of Princess Katrina, the anticipation of their new baby and Prince Sergei's return. But it is not a happily ever after story at all. You have two families, the aristocrats (the Fedorcenko family) and the humble peasants (the Burenin family). You have the uprising in St. Petersubrg, the frozen wasteland of Siberia and the humble home in Katyk. You will see how God brings all things together in His timing. Life will be hard in this story, but there is always hope and faith to see them through. As the back of the book says, "Phillips and Pella weave a story that demonstrates how God's sovereignty extends over all human experience." ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764224662, Paperback)

All around them, the Russia they have known is crumbling. Can faith in God bring triumph out of their tragedy?

The noble house of Fedorcenko has much to rejoice in: the marriage of Princess Katrina, the anticipation of a new baby, the return of Prince Sergi.

But life does not end as a fairy tale. Even as they celebrate, rebel forces are at work to overthrow the tsar—and the house of Fedorcenko as well.

In this compelling sequel to A House Divided, Michael Phillips and Judith Pella continue the saga of two families—the aristocratic family of Fedorcenko and the humble peasants from Katyk, the Burenins.

From the frozen wasteland of Siberia to the tumult of St. Petersburg, Phillips and Pella weave a story that demonstrates how God's sovereignty extends over all human experience.

Glad family tidings are overshadowed by the Russian Revolution.
