Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Revolution of Marina M. by Janet Fitch

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. It's based on Waiting On Wednesday hosted at Breaking the Spine.



The Revolution of Marina M. by Janet Fitch
Expected publication: November 7th 2017 by Little, Brown and Company

From the mega-bestselling author of White Oleander and Paint It Black, a sweeping historical saga of the Russian Revolution, as seen through the eyes of one young woman

St. Petersburg, New Year's Eve, 1916. Marina Makarova is a young woman of privilege who aches to break free of the constraints of her genteel life, a life about to be violently upended by the vast forces of history. Swept up on these tides, Marina will join the marches for workers' rights, fall in love with a radical young poet, and betray everything she holds dear, before being betrayed in turn.

As her country goes through almost unimaginable upheaval, Marina's own coming-of-age unfolds, marked by deep passion and devastating loss, and the private heroism of an ordinary woman living through extraordinary times. This is the epic, mesmerizing story of one indomitable woman's journey through some of the most dramatic events of the last century.

The author is unknown to me but The Revolution of Marina M. sounds like the perfect book for me:

Historical fiction 
1900's 
Russia 
The Russian Revolution 
800+ pages 

I can't wait for it to be released!

  11. I have read a lot about the Russian Revolution because we studied it a lot in school and also because it is a very prominent and intriguing time in history. This sounds like it would be one I would want to read too!
