Synopsis

The golden skies, the translucent twilight, the white nights, all hold the promise of youth, of love, of eternal renewal. The war has not yet touched this city of fallen grandeur, or the lives of two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha Metanova, who share a single room in a cramped apartment with their brother and parents. Their world is turned upside down when Hitler's armies attack Russia and begin their unstoppable blitz to Leningrad.

Yet there is light in the darkness. Tatiana meets Alexander, a brave young officer in the Red Army. Strong and self-confident, yet guarding a mysterious and troubled past, he is drawn to Tatiana—and she to him. Starvation, desperation, and fear soon grip their city during the terrible winter of the merciless German siege. Tatiana and Alexander's impossible love threatens to tear the Metanova family apart and expose the dangerous secret Alexander so carefully protects—a secret as devastating as the war itself—as the lovers are swept up in the brutal tides that will change the world and their lives forever.

I really enjoyed this book. The historical detail regarding Russia, Leningrad and World War 2 was very engaging. The love story theme has some rather unbelieveable moments but I still found myself looking forward to reading this novel every day. Recommend it highly!!

Epic journey
December 14th, 2014
Really loved this story. Set in WWII Russia it follows the journey of Tatiana a young Russian girl and Alexander an army officer. I love when a book manages to evoke so many emotions. It was intense, heartbreaking, frustrating at times, but it also had me hopeful and cheering.

A unique love story

Now this is a love story I've never read before, with sensual love scenes that puts "Fifty Shades of Gray" to shame.

Without a single doubt in my mind do I say that The Bronze Horseman is the best book that I have ever read. The talented play between the undisputed facts of history and the desperately engaging twists and turns of Tatiana and Alexander's struggle is skilfully executed by Simons, resulting in a spellbinding novel that will captivate readers until the very last page. This novel has everything - facts and fiction, romance and tragedy, violence and peace, laughter and tears. Be prepared for an emotional roller-coaster that will change the way you regard the words 'historical fiction' forever.

this is a love story so epic it rivals the other great love stories of our times. I have not read a story that made me cry, laugh, or cheer so much. This book is the first of a trilogy; books two and three did not disappoint.
