Publisher's Summary

In Joseph Stalin's early 1930s Russia, an entire class of people were at risk of exploitation. Valeyria and Alexei Yolkin were members of one such family.
It was a freezing day when the first Yolkin siblings turned on another. With the young children listening in fear below in the darkness, they heard their uncle Eduard giving orders to kill their mother and father. The only girl, Valeyria, aged just seven, had a sudden desire for revenge, it consumed her. She hated her uncle Eduard and she wanted him to die - by her hands, if she could.
But would her thirst for revenge lead her to her final dawn and cloud her judgement? Will she take it too far and turn on those she is supposed to love?

Five stars plus!

When this story came to its end, I realized that I had listened all the way through without a single break. Amazing!
It wasn't only the story that I found so entertaining, but the superb narration by Melanie Fraser.
Definitely two very talented people bringing us a totally captivating tale and I am definitely recommending this book which is full of hate, revenge, trust and the betrayal of that trust.
I was given a free audiobook by the narrator and this is my unbiased review.
