Karin: This is great! Follett’s new epic saga following 5 families through World War I, The Russian Revolution, and the struggle for Women’s suffrage. The reader is moved seamlessly from Washington to St. Petersburg, from the dirt and danger of a coal mine to the glittering chandeliers of a palace, from the corridors of power to the bedrooms of the mighty. The historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion. It is destined to be a new classic.
