Leningrad, 1941: The European war seems far away in this city of fallen grandeur, where splendid palaces and stately boulevards speak of a different age, when the city was known as St. Petersburg.

A very interesting and enjoyable read until about 3/4 through. Then the sex got a bit boring. I also felt...particularly toward the end that the dialogue was not really 40's dialogue. But all in all it was a good read.

This book will be hard to beat. Have you ever read a book that was so good that you almost regret having read it because you know that no other book in the world will ever live up to it, and from now on you are doomed to a life of second class books? Well that is how I felt after reading this book. I finished it, put it on my bookshelf, looked at other books on my TBR pile, sighed with dissapointment at all of the choices (which had seemed so apealing a few days earlier), shrugged my shoulders, reached for The Bronze Horseman, and read it all over again. It is just that good. Blissful torture. Be warned: this book may be the book that ruins all other books for you.

This is one of my all time favorites. Great characters and very vivid descriptions of events in history from WWII. Be sure to read the follow up books "The Bridge to Holy Cross" and "The Summer Garden" They are all good.

A must read. I totally enjoyed my time spent with this book. It's characters became like best friends that you couldn't put the book down wanting to know what will happen next. Definately a heart warming book once again showing the true meaning of love for another person and our families.

Very good book and I enjoyed the time period and history. There were times I became frustrated with the pace and the main characters, which is what kept me from giving it 5 stars, but otherwise it is a solid read. Looking forward to starting the sequel.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful I thought this book was. The author swept me up in WWII Leningrad and I could feel, smell and taste along with the characters. After the first few pages I was hooked and immediately ordered the next 2 books in the trilogy.
