Pregnant and adrift, Marina Makarova finds herself alone amid the devastation of the Russian Civil War, forced to rely on her own resourcefulness to find a place to wait out the birth of her child and eventually make her way back to her native city, Petrograd. In Janet Fitch's sequel to The Revolution of Marina M, the young poet takes on the challenge of caring for some of St. Petersburg's many orphans, until they become the tool of tragedy from an unexpected direction.
