Publisher's Summary

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.

Please give us the other two books in the series!!

I absolutely love this story I fell in love with it from the first chapter Paulina is an amazing writer. It would be an honor for me to listen to the other two books read by this narrator also, James Langton did a marvelous job. His voice brought all the characters alive couldn't stop listening. Please once again the next two books of the trilogy would be wonderful. No one should miss listening to this love story. My Grandfathers were in WWll on the US side and I throughly enjoy these stories, they tell how everyone suffered so much and all is for freedom to live and love under God. Thank You!

I'm not even half way through this story and I'm just dismayed at the cliches, at the stereotypes, and the poor characterizations. All the wonderful reviews and yet I cannot go on. I just cannot see this evolving into anything close to "A Gentleman in Moscow" by Amor Towles, or "Saphire Skies" by Belinda Alexandra, or even "Lilac Girls" by Martha Hall Kelly, and so many more that didn't heavily rely on the above mentioned stereotypes, all while portraying the same in much better taste - with horror and dismay. The only difference is the ex-patriots from other countries vaguely referred to. As far as I can see the romance is a bit shmalzy and over done, and I haven't even gotten to the good parts yet.

There are SO MANY other excellent WWII books - oh my gosh I didn't mention "The Firebird" either - that are about Russia, that this tawdry tale cannot hold a candle to.

The narrator apparently is a second choice, yet... Why have a man try and portray a woman's (girl's lets face it) story? He was not a good choice for this book.

It is going back ASAP. I have other books to hear!
