The Bronze Horseman #1

Leningrad 1941: the white nights of summer illuminate a city of fallen grandeur whose beautiful palaces and stately avenues speak of a different age, when Leningrad was known as St Petersburg.

Two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha, share the same bed, living in one room with their brother and parents. It is a hard, impoverished life, yet the Metanovs know many who are not as fortunate as they.

The family routine is shattered on 22 June 1941 when Hitler invades Russia. For the Metanovs, for Leningrad and for Tatiana, life will never be the same again. On the fateful day, Tatiana meets a brash young officer named Alexander.

Tatiana and her family suffer as Hitler's army advances on Leningrad, and the Russian winter closes in. With bombs falling and the city under siege, Tatiana and Alexander are drawn to each other in an impossible love. It is a love that could tear Tatiana's family apart, a love that carries a secret that could mean death for anyone who hears it.

Confronted on the one hand by Hitler's unstoppable war machine, and on the other by a Soviet system determined to crush the human spirit, Tatiana and Alexander are pitted against the very tide of history, at a turning point in the century that made the modern world.

Mesmerizing from the very first page to the final, breathtaking end, The Bronze Horseman brings alive the story of two indomitable, heroic spirits and their great love that triumphs over the devastation of a country at war.

Alguns livros te fazem sofrer, chorar, se descabelar... Outros partem a sua alma e o seu coração silenciosamente. Eu li The Bronze Horseman pela primeira vez em Março deste ano. Na época eu não tive a força para escrever uma resenha. Vejam bem, o meu coração e a minha mente não conseguiam se conectar da forma correta para que eu pudesse transmitir eloquentemente o que pensei sobre o livro. Irritada eu me convenci a deixar para depois. Recentemente eu me deparei novamente com o livro ... leia mais
