From the cover: “To David, arriving from America to spend a year learning Russian and assessing the business prospects for his industrialist father who had hopes of Russo-American co-operation, St. Petersburg in the autumn of 1916 was a baffling though not unfriendly city. There were disquieting undertones, odd occurrences, and always the war in the background, but David often found it hard to believe everything his student friend, Anton, told him. Politics absorbed Anton as the ballet did Sonya. English Linda, working as a helper in the Anglo-Russian hospital, often knew most about what was happening, on the front at any rate. But Anton was right. Before David’s year was out the quartet of young people found themselves witnesses to a cataclysmic event: the Russian Revolution.
