This book is centered around a family and their neighbors and their many trials as their country and way of life are being taken from them.
I enjoyed how the author brought you into the various characters' inner feelings and showed the different sides of their personalities. In some of the characters, at one point you saw the bad side of them and later you found you were wishing them happiness. The book shows family togetherness, human thoughtfulness and the true meaning of love and how it helps overcome the bad occurances.
The book can be compared to Dr. Zhivago, being, in the hardships of the Bolshevik revolution and a love story.
I recommend this as a great Christmas gift to someone who likes to read.
