After the events of The Revolution of Marina M., young Marina Makarova is pregnant and on her own, forced to eke out an existence in the Russian countryside and plotting her escape back to Petrograd.

"I needed both the stove pot and the divine. I was a poet, but I was also a human being..."

Marina's (and stumbling Russia's) saga continues (years 1919 - 1921, the civil war) in this sequel to "The Revolution of Marina M." by Janet Fitch, a poignant story of a young poet coming of age and coming to terms with herself and the Revolution that she originally embraced but since discovered what a total fraud it was - "The Bolsheviks are not the revolution. They've taken it somewhere and hidden it under a haystack."

In Book 2, there is a true to life description of the literary world of Petersburg/Petrograd of the time, with all the known literary figures portrayed and woven into the plot. Marina watches how "Blok had stopped writing... because there were no more sounds.... You couldn't say anything real or true when there was an immense lie sucking up all the air"... There is Gorky and Mayakovsky and Akhmatova... There are those who succumb and pander to the new regime and those who bide their time in an ever dwindling hope of the true right of writing without censorship. All of this, as the background to Marina's horrific private struggles and losses that finally bring her to an inevitable decision. A praiseworthy denouement, but I wish there was a third book nevertheless. ( )

An amazing book but read 1 and 2 together because there are too many Russian people with Russian names to remember. An interesting commentary on revolutions. A think some of the historical references were not correct. Is there going to be a book 3 ( )
