Beautifull written about a little known culture, the mennonites in Russia. But you need a strong stomach to handle all the greed, envy and killing.
Birdsell writes wonderful prose in this story of Katya, a Mennonite girl who escapes being slaughtered along with most of her other family during World War 1 in pre-communist Russia. I found this book started off rather slowly, but wound up being quite an interesting historical read.
Too many characters introduced in the beginnig. Even at the end of the book I was still going back to figure out who was who. The only reason I persisted in continuing to read the book is because it is my brother-in-laws history.
