5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautifully written story set during Stalin's regime of fear, 10. Juni 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: One Night in Winter (Kindle Edition)
Before I read the book I was worried it might be too factual (after all, the author is a historian) or too bleak (due to its setting during the time of Stalin). But since I enjoy stories set in Russia I decided to give it a try. I was rewarded with a surprisingly gripping and emotional story about this web of polished lies, whispered half-truth, deceit and desperation and the power of love and humanity set against the backdrop of Stalin’s Soviet Union. And I highly recommend this book.

The book starts with the criminal investigation of the shooting of two teenaged schoolchildren. This investigation, however, soon turns into a paranoid search for conspirators that plan to overthrow Stalin’s government. No one is secure during this time in Soviet Russia. No matter if you are a six year old girl or a war veteran and part of the Soviet government. One Night in Winter shows how Stalin’s system of fear and espionage lets kids turn against their parents and friends become foes. By mixing fictional with historical figures the authors evokes a very lively picture of Stalin’s Russia.

The characters are very believable and they draw you into this world and let you fear and also hope with them. You can feel the terror they experience, you can understand how one lie leads to another – and how they still cling on to hope and love.
