Love was just the beginning of their journey ...

Gina and Harry have given up everything to be together. But they both want different things: from their marriage, from life, from each other ... and from the shifting world around them.

Gina, independent, compassionate and strong, desperately wants a family. Harry, idealistic and fiercely political, wants to create a better world, a better country. At crossroads and cross-purposes, they pursue their opposing dreams at great cost to themselves and those near to them. Through years of passion and turmoil they rail, rage, and break each other's hearts, only to come face to face with a stark final choice that will forever determine their destiny.

Their journey takes them through four decades and two continents, from extreme poverty to great wealth, from the wooden planks of the troubled, immigrant town of Lawrence to the marble halls and secret doors of a mystical place called ... Bellagrand.

From internationally bestselling author Paullina Simons comes another compelling saga of heartbreak and redemption, and the devastating love story that led to The Bronze Horseman.

About the Author

Paullina Simons was born in Leningrad, and emigrated to the United States in 1973. Her novels include The Bronze Horseman, The Bridge to Holy Cross and The Summer Garden. She lives close to New York with her husband and four children.

    Comment on this review

    Praise for Tatiana and Alexander: 'This has everything a romance glutton could wish for: a bold, talented and dashing hero, a heart-stopping love affair ... It also has - thank goodness - a welcome sense of humour and discernible characters rather than ciphers.' Victoria Moore, Daily Mail Praise for The Bronze Horseman: 'Pulling off the passionate love story embedded in a truly epic narrative is a difficult thing to do. Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind remains the blueprint for the genre, while Tolstoy's War and Peace carries off the literary honours ... it's quickly apparent that the Russian-born author Paullina Simons has the measure of this kind of epic romantic saga ... She is able to make some powerful statements about the durability of the human spirit, but never at the expense of descriptive passages refulgent with power and beauty' Barry Forshaw, Amazon Praise for Tully: 'Pick up this book and prepare to have your emotions wrung so completely you'll be sobbing your heart out one minute and laughing through your tears the next... Read it and weep - literally' Company
