The Secret City (Barnes & Noble Digital Library) by Hugh Walpole

During World War I, Walpole worked in Petrograd (St. Petersburg) as Head of British Propaganda. He drew on that experience for this 1919 novel, the tale of a Russian family caught up in the political intrigue of the Revolution. The book was the first winner of the prestigious James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction.
