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, and 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.
