St. Petersburg, New Year's Eve, 1916. Marina Makarova is a young woman of privilege who aches to break free of the constraints of her genteel life, a life about to be violently upended by the vast forces of history. Swept up on these tides, Marina will join the marches for workers' rights, fall in love with a radical young poet, and betray everything she holds dear, before being betrayed in turn.

As her country goes through almost unimaginable upheaval, Marina's own coming-of-age unfolds, marked by deep passion and devastating loss, and the private heroism of an ordinary woman living through extraordinary times. This is the epic, mesmerizing story of one indomitable woman's journey through some of the most dramatic events of the last century.

Takes some time to ingest but well worth it. The characters, especially Marina, are worth caring about. Marina is young and privileged and decides to join the revolution. Quite literally she goes through hell. The author had me until part 5 and then the story became unbelievable and wacky. I only finished it because I wanted to see if she survived. It's a hard, harsh education in life for her. Will I read the next book? Probably.
