Summary

For most of her life, Lydia Ivanov believed her Danish father to be dead, a victim of the Russian Revolution. Furnivall's sequel to The Russian Concubine picks up with Lydia's discovery that he is still alive, held as a prisoner of the Soviet Union. With her half-brother, Alexei, and lifelong friend and protector Liev Popkov in tow, Lydia sets off on a journey from the Chinese city of Junchow to reunite her fractured family. Close on their heels is Lydia's love interest, the Communist activist Chang An Lo, who has discovered vital information about Lydia's father that he must pass on to her. With a much tighter plot than Furnivall's last effort, this book delivers an engrossing adventure that sweeps readers along in lush waves of drama and romance. Though a few minor weak spots beg the suspension of disbelief, the unflinching and finely crafted descriptions of Russia in its Soviet infancy more than compensate. A rare sequel that is better than its predecessor, this novel will appeal to those seeking a summer beach read that mixes fascinating historical details with exciting adventure and romance.Leigh Wright, Bridgewater, NJ Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
