Siberia 1919. In the outer reaches of a country recently torn apart by civil war lives a small Christian sect and its enigmatic leader, Balashov. Stationed nearby is a regiment of Czech soldiers, desperate to get home but on the losing side in the recent conflict. Into this isolated community trudges Samarin, an escapee from Russia's northernmost gulag. Immediately apprehended, he is brought before the regiment's megalomaniac commander. But the stranger's arrival has also caught the attention of others, including Anna, a beautiful young war widow. And when the local shaman lies dead, suspicion and terror engulf the little town.

    " More historical fiction, taking place during the Russian revolution and highlighting a community quite unlike any other. This wasn't necessarily riveting to me; it took several attempts to finish, mostly because I didn't really like any of the characters. "

    " Okay - first of all, you HAVE to get past the first 100 pages. (Because there are so many people with Russian names and situations you don't quite understand, the first hundred pages are pretty confusing.) Don't give up though! Once you get past that 100 pages - and those of you who have read this, once Anna reads THE letter, this book just takes off. There are so many situations and revelations and secrets and passions, that this book is so entirely intriguing and captivating and exciting that you absolutely CAN'T put it down. I was just blown away by this book! "
