We gave it a B+

Beautiful Russian teen Sashenka rejects her privileged family’s ?lifestyle by becoming a revolution-era Bolshevik and, later, a dedicated Communist under Stalin. Then an affair sets off a chain of events that leads to her arrest. Sashenka’s youth is not as consuming as her adult life, ? but Simon Montefiore is more than adept at portraying the terror of Stalin’s rule with Sashenka, this sobering novel. B+
