Blood Red, Snow White

by Marcus Sedgwick
£6.99   paperback  Orion Publishing Co (2008)

Blood Red, Snow White by Marcus Sedgwick 'The time for princes and Tsars and holy madmen was gone.
In its place came a world of war and revolution, tanks and telephones, murder and assassination.'

 
Deep in the snowy forest, the great bear that is Russia wakes from a long sleep and marches to St Petersburg to claim its birthright. In 1917 the Bolsheviks hold power, Lenin and Trotsky govern from palaces where the Tsars once danced till dawn. Their time is over.
 
And caught in the midst, an Englishman played a dangerous game. Arthur Ransome, a journalist and writer, left his home, his wife and daughter, and fell in love with Russia and a Russian woman, Evgenia.
 
Fairy tale, spy thriller and love story blend to capture the flavour of revolution and Ransome's part in it.
