Publisher's Summary

The golden skies, the translucent twilight, the white nights all hold the promise of youth, of love, of eternal renewal. The war has not yet touched this city of fallen grandeur or the lives of two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha Metanova, who share a single room in a cramped apartment with their brother and parents. Their world is turned upside down when Hitler's armies attack Russia and begin their unstoppable blitz to Leningrad.
Yet there is light in the darkness. Tatiana meets Alexander, a brave young officer in the Red Army. Strong and self-confident yet guarding a mysterious and troubled past, he is drawn to Tatiana - and she to him. Starvation, desperation, and fear soon grip their city during the terrible winter of the merciless German siege. Tatiana and Alexander's impossible love threatens to tear the Metanova family apart and expose the dangerous secret Alexander so carefully protects - a secret as devastating as the war itself - as the lovers are swept up in the brutal tides that will change the world and their lives forever.

It made me cry

What a wonderful love story. I was gripped from start to finish. The cold of the Russian winter seeped through the text and the love of Alex and Tatiana burned through. I never wanted it to end and sorely missed it when it did. The characters were beautifully drawn and Paulina Simons writing flowed beautifully.

Bad choice of narrator

I've loved this book from years ago and even asked for it to be brought to life on Audible when life got too busy for me to sit and read it again. My excitement about my wish finally coming true soon turned to poutiness when the narrator was male and he gave Alexander a Scottish accent and didn't give him the strong accent he deserved. Then other characters had English, sometimes London accents and I couldn't help but roll my eyes with disappointment.
Ok that is said and so if you've never read the book you will probably enjoy the narration.
This is a love story, it's beautiful and you'll fall in love with Tatiana and Alexander. Despite the narration I'll listen to this again and again while I wait for Rothfuss to get the last book out (The Kingkiller Chronicles)
