Overview

The epic saga of love and war continues—the heart-stopping sequel to Paullina Simons's beloved international bestseller The Bronze Horseman.

Tatiana is eighteen years old, pregnant, and widowed when she escapes war-torn Leningrad to find a new life in America. But the ghosts of her past do not rest easily. She becomes consumed by the belief that her husband, Red Army officer Alexander Belov, is still alive and needs her desperately.

Meanwhile, oceans and continents away in the Soviet Union, Alexander barely escapes execution, and is forced to lead a battalion of soldiers considered expendable by the Soviet high command. Yet Alexander is determined to take his men through the ruins of Europe in one last desperate bid to escape Stalin's death machine and somehow find his way to Tatiana once again.

Editorial Reviews

Daily Mail (London)
“This has everything a romance glutton could wish for: a bold, talented and dashing hero, a heart-stopping love affair! It also has — thank goodness — a welcome sense of humor and discernable characters rather than ciphers.”

    Great story- bad version.

    The ebook version is missing chunks from the original book. I love the story but I know there was more interact between the two characters--and I have the paperback version to prove it.

    Tatiana and Alexander is a love story that tugs at the heartstrings.

    Tatiana and Alexander
    Paullina Simons
    Avon, Jun 29 2010, $15.99
    ISBN: 9780061987465

    In 1941 eighteen year old Tatiana Metanova and Red Army Officer Alexander Belov met and fell in love (see The Bronze Horseman). She becomes pregnant while he goes off to fight Hitler's army. Tatiana believes her beloved died so as a single mom widow manages to get to Ellis Island via Scandinavia and the across the Atlantic. Tatiana changes her name to Jane Barrington and gets a position as a nurse on Ellis Island while also raising her son Anthony, but misses her beloved Alexander

    Meanwhile Stalin's Secret Police arrests Alexander who is accused of being a traitor. He is sentenced to die. He looks back ironically to when his father, a communist believer, left a nice middle class existence in America to relocate the family in Stalin's impoverished Russia. However, those thoughts add to his pain. Only remembering his beloved Tatiana keeps him going through the torture and the expectation of death.

    The sequel to The Bronze Horseman changes perspective from Tatiana's vivid descriptions of the horrors of war especially the Battle of Leningrad with her one light being Alexander; to his bleak tale of all's deadly on the German front especially his only stay of execution being the lead of a suicide mission with his one light being Tatiana. The terrific story line uses the atrocities of war as the backdrop to the human spirit when love can overcome so much. Tatiana and Alexander is a love story that tugs at the heartstrings.

    Quick Read, but not as well-written as The Bronze Horseman

    I waited for this book to come out in June after reading The Bronze Horseman twice, cover to cover in April. This book definitely was great, but the hero and heroine were separated most of the story, while only having maybe 100 pages of adventure, stress, and love together. It was a long drawn-out four years of separation with only a quick, too-short climax and ending. I found the author drescribed most scenes with passive verbs rather than show us the setting and have us feel the emotions of Tatiana and Alexander. My favorite is still the first. I actually went out and read Pushkin's narrative poem, The Bronze Horseman. :)

    The best trilogy!

    I wasn't sure what to expect with "The Bronze Horseman," and then this sequel, but I was blown away! The love story is fantastic, but the realistic portrayal of life in the Soviet Union during World War II and the failure of Communism make these books doubly great! The books are for adults, but I would wholeheartedly recommend them.

    The best Russian love story

    The trilogy is wonderful. The author develops the characters so that you think of them as someone you know. I highly recommend reading all three starting with The Bronze Horseman, Tatiana and Alexander and The Summer Garden. I am almost finished with the last one, The Summer Garden and I am sad for the story to end. One can always hope for a movie! Don't miss these wonderful books.

    A Must Read

    A great sequel to "The Bronze Horseman" . After reading the Bronze Horseman I didn't want the story to end so I bought Tatiana & Alexander and was not disappointed.
