Contents: Petersburg is set against a tapestry woven from some of the most fascinating events and figures of turn-of-the-century Russia. The crumbling court of Czar Nicholas II; the avant-garde music of Stravinsky and Rimsky-Korsakov; the romantic, revolutionary writings of Gorky; the splendor of Stanislavsky's Moscow Art Theatre; the defiant call to arms of the exiled Trotsky and Lenin; the peaceful pageantry of the workers' procession to the Winter Palace; the czar's sudden attack, which transforms the march into the slaughterhouse of Bloody Sunday all become part of an authentic historical struggle with the irresistible impact of a moving love story
Responsibility: Emily Hanlon.

Four people swept up in the turmoil of the Russian Revolution experience the bitter struggles, courageous calls to arms, and passionate love--both personal and patriotic--that carry them through a time of staggering conflicts and changes.
