"paperback Midnight in St Petersburg…"
Midnight In St Petersburg fiction story is based on a personal story, of the author Vanora Bennett. It was Vanora's great-uncle that worked for Faberge before the Russian Revolution and he fled to England as the Revolution took hold. The whole novel has impressive words that just seem to flow on each page. A heart tugging story not to be missed. The story is set in St Petersburg during the Russian Revolution, a sweeping novel of love and loss as Inna fights for her own survival and for the man she loves. September to December 1911. Inna a jew has to flee Kiev by train to St Petersburg to stay with her cousin. While Inna is on the train she has her fortune told by a gypsy. The gypsy woman with a scowl pushed Inna's hand away muttering one thing for sure we live in evil times and explaning her about her lifeline. A spell developed all over me. Inna an orphan was on her way to stay with her cousin Yasha and the flamboyant Leman family. When Inna gets of the train in St Petesrburg station she is stopped and has to show her documents that she held in her little internal passport that she had stolen. All was well for Inna after showing her stolen documents and she set forward to find her cousin's house.Soon Inna is forced to choose beween following her heart or her head. I recommend Midnight In St Peterburg as it is full of passion and danger.
