Review: The Bronze Horseman

The Bronze Horseman (The Bronze Horseman, #1)The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a beautiful story! A deceptively simple tale of impossible love that captured me from the opening scenes.

Simons perfectly portrays the thrill of new love, setting it against the backdrop of an eternal languid summer. As love deepens and war advances, Simons equally perfectly renders the tragedy of the siege of Leningrad; the freezing cold, the starvation and death of maybe a million citizens, and the horror of bodies stacking up in the streets.

This story is so passionate, so deep, so well formed, so Russian. I can’t wait to read the next in the series.
