In this politically-charged, romantically-driven thriller of a novel, Furnivall strikes a chord with critics and readers alike with its powerful narrative and unforgettable characters. Set in Russia during Josef Stalin's communist rule in 1930, Furnivall ambitiously takes readers on a journey to the heart of all the unfolding drama, resurrecting the essence of early twentieth-century Russia and China in vivid, spectacular details.
