In 1917 the Bolsheviks hold power in the newly named Petrograd. Lenin and Trotsky govern from palaces where the Tsars once danced till dawn. Another man played a part in it all. His name was Arthur Ransome, a journalist and writer who left his English home, his wife and daughter, and fell in love with Russia and a Russian woman, Evgenia. This is his story.
What the critics say:
– Jennifer Taylor, The Bookseller
‘ ... a mesmerising retelling of Ransome’s time in Russia during the Revolution, and should appeal to adults as well as Sedgwick’s loyal band of teenage readers’
– Danuta Kean,The Independent on Sunday
