Midnight in St Petersburg

Рейтинг: 
Set in St Petersburg during the Russian Revolution, a sweeping novel of love and loss as one woman fights for her own personal survival - and for the man she loves. By the acclaimed author of Blood Royal and Queen of Silks. St Petersburg,1911: Inna Feldman has fled the pogroms of her native Kiev to take refuge with distant relatives in Russia's capital city. Welcomed into the flamboyant Leman family, she is apprenticed into their violin-making workshop, and feels instantly at home in their bohemian circle of friends. But revolution is in the air and, as society begins to fracture, she is forced to choose between following her heart or her head. Her brooding cousin, Yasha is wild, destructive and bent on rebellion. While Horace, the Englishman who works for Faberge, promises security and respectability. As the city descends into anarchy and blood-letting, Inna is offered a chance to escape. But which man will she choose to take with her? And is she already too late?
