As their world is torn apart by the Russian Revolution, Katarina Hildebrandt and Johann Sudermann strive to maintain their faith in God. Paul Gregorovich Tekanin has chosen what he thought to be the path to Utopia, but is instead finding it to be a way of darkness. History unfolds as these young people look desperately for a source of safety.
Set in Russia during The Russian Revolution & World War 1 we follow the lives of the several Mennonite families. I dont know a lot about that time period so I enjoyed learning about it. I found myself wanting to know more about the revolution. We continue the story of Katarina and Johann as they navigate through the uncertain times. They had a lot of determination. I had a difficult time getting into this story. It started getting more interesting about halfway through the book. Janice Dick does a great job weaving scripture and the Lord’s wisdom throughout this story.
If you’re interested in the mennonite community and the Russian revolution, this would be a good story for you.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
