"Never forget where you came from."

At the turn of the century and the dawning of the modern world, Gina from Belpasso comes to Boston's Freedom Docks to find a new and better life, and meets Harry Barrington, who is searching for his.

The fates of the Barringtons and Attavianos become entwined, on a collision course between the old and new, between what is expected and what is desired, what is chosen and what is bestowed, what is given and what is taken away.

As America races headlong into the future, much will be lost and much will be gained for Gina and Harry, whose ill-fated love story will break your heart.

            A very different book to her usual writings, but still a great book to read. I do love her books, well worth buying

                I have read all of Paullina's books. Her last 2 before this one were disappointing but in this one she has a return to her previous form. A good read!

                Good, but certainly not her best.

                Certainly a good book but not the authors best. In the beginning the plot can sometimes be a little slow but definitely picks up towards the end.

                I'm a huge fan of Paulina Simons - love her books and have met her but wouldn't say this is one of her better books. Gina irritated me half way through the book. Saying that, still well worth a read and certainly the final chapter comes to a dramatic ending - what a lesson in life !! WOW Was a reasonable holiday read.

                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

                Paullina Simons was born in Leningrad, USSR in 1963. At the age of ten her family immigrated to the United States. Growing up in Russia Paullina dreamt of someday becoming a writer. Her dream was put on hold as she learned English and overcame the shock of a new culture.

                After graduating from university and after various jobs including working as a financial journalist and as a translator Paullina wrote her first novel Tully. Through word of mouth that book was welcomed by readers all over the world.

                She has since written Red Leaves, Eleven Hours, The Bronze Horseman, The Bridge to Holy Cross, (also known as Tatiana and Alexander.) The Summer Garden and The Girl in Times Square. Many of Paullina's novels have reached international bestseller lists in countries including Australia and New Zealand.

                Apart from her novels, Paullina has also written a cookbook, Tatiana's Table, which is a collection of recipes, short stories and recollections from her best selling trilogy of novels, The Bronze Horseman, The Bridge to Holy Cross, (also known as Tatiana and Alexander) and The Summer Garden. Paullina's latest novel is Road To Paradise which is currently available in all reputable Australian and New Zealand book stores.
