I just finished book 2 of the Tatiana and Alexander trilogy. Here’s the summary from Goodreads.com.
“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.”
This was another amazing book from Paullina Simons. I couldn’t help but hate the situations that Tatiana and Alexander found themselves in. I loved the random surprises that lurked in these pages and hated the times when those surprises were ruined.
I love Tatiana and Alexander and their love and their fight for each other. This was a beautiful story and a great way to continue their journey.
I briefly started reading book 3 in this trilogy, The Summer Garden, but had to put it down so it can count for my Fall Book Challenge in my book club.
