(First Edition, Signed Bookplate) In St. Petersburg, on the last day of 1916, Marina Makarova is a young woman of privilege who aches to break free of the constraints of her genteel life, not knowing that it is about to be violently swept up on revolutionary tides. Marina will join marches for workers' rights, fall in love with a radical young poet, and betray everything she holds dear, before being betrayed in turn. As Russia endures almost unimaginable upheaval, Marina's own coming of age is marked by deep passion and devastating loss, and the private heroism of an ordinary woman living through extraordinary times. In her fourth novel, the author of White Oleander and Paint It Black again creates an unforgettable female protagonist, and we are pleased to offer this first edition with a bookplate signed by Janet Fitch.
