A marvelous story of star-crossed lovers set in Leningrad during the seige of WWII. Paullina Simons has written a classic love story of the new century, chock full of history and characters that you will think about for weeks after reading about them. I felt as though I had lived through that terrible winter in Leningrad. I only wish the book were twice as long, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed, hoping for a sequel.
Don't let this one pass you by. It's a book you'll always remember, and want to read over and over again.
