Russia, 1917. Horror is spreading all over Europe: horror in the shape of war. Now the Bolsheviks are rising. Russia’s turn has come. The time for princes and Tsars is gone. But what new world – of tanks and telephones, murder and assassination – will dawn in its place?
Marcus Sedgwick’s stirring story of the Russian revolution is a tale of real history: of the end of an ancient dynasty; the glories and excesses of the Russian nobility; notorious Rasputin; Lenin and Trotsky ruling from palaces where the Czars had once danced till dawn. The man telling the story was real too: Arthur Ransome. A writer accused of being a spy, he left his English wife and beloved daughter, falling in love with Russia and a Russian woman, Evgenia. Vividly evoking that tumultuous, long-ago time, Blood Red, Snow White is a stunning tale of revolution and love from a master writer.
