South Russia, 1914.
The world is at war and revolution threatens. Against this backdrop of fear and danger, three young people search for hope and love.
Katarina Hildebrandt’s tranquil life on her family’s Crimean estate is about to change. Tutor Johann Sudermann has found true faith, but it will turn his life upside-down. And Paul Gregorovich Tekanin, working for the revolution in St. Petersburg, finds his choices will demand his soul as well as his wit and strength.
Will they find faith to weather the coming storm?
This was an interesting book to read. It takes place in South Russia in 1914. The story follows a couple different families and their lives and how the war affected them. It was a little hard to follow and was a bit choppy. I felt like it bounced from person to person a little. I was drawn into the story and wanted to find out what happened. I enjoyed getting to know the Hildebrandts and Johann very much. I especially liked Katarina. She was someone I would enjoy being friends with.
I enjoyed this historical aspects of the story. I didn’t know a lot about the Mennnonites and their part in the war. It made me want to do more research. I liked the strong faith throughout the book.
I recommend this book to my family and friends.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. I also purchased a copy for myself. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
