Planning next year. We are taking 8 countries to study and Russia is one of them. Each month I will assign 2 books to read. I'd love to have 1 fiction and the other a missionary story. I'm looking for suggestions....any ideas?
I was going to recommend the books already recommended here but if you would like a well written series for yourself to get you into the mindset of Russia while you are teaching about it I totally recommend "The Russians" by Judith Pella and Michael Phillips. The are a fiction series about a peasant girl who is befriended by a Upper Class Girl, I didn't finish the series, couldn't get the books I needed from the library and lost interest but apparently the ones from the Razputen Era are rather graphic in nature.
Interstingly enough the main character's family is Christian, and that is sort of the connecting thread through the books, how the family keeps the faith throughout the history of Russia.
