Beautiful story, a matter of intense material from the soul. I loved the author, he writes with his heart. This is a thriller and beautifully done. A story of love gone wrong. I found myself wanting to drag it out, not wanting it to end. Siberia is such a lonely place and so beautiful it makes for an intimate read. Yes , when you are finished with this novel it will be a personal thing about how you feel about what you have read. I very much enjoyed my time spent with with "The People's Act of Love".

I think the author took two of the most outrageous aspects of Russia in the early 20th century and built a book around them. If it wasn't for my book club, I would not have finished this book. It became a "homework assignment" that I was determined to finish.
