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.

I have a confession to make. When selecting a new audiobook, I won’t countenance anything short as I see it as poor value for money. A happy side effect of this miserliness, though, is trying books I might not otherwise select. The Revolution of Marina M. is a case in point. Starting as the story of a privileged teenager, it provides a glimpse into the everyday reality of the Russian revolution. I really got swept up Marina’s story, and was sorry it ended.

This is a magical book. It's absolutely fascinating! Yelena, the narrator, makes you slip in into Marina's world.
