description

Faberge jewels, the mysterious Rasputin and a priceless violin-one young woman fights for survival, and for love, in revolutionary Russia.

St. Petersburg, 1911: Inna Feldman has fled the pogroms of the south to take refuge with distant relatives in Russia''s capital city. Welcomed by the flamboyant Leman family, she is apprenticed into their violin-making workshop. She feels instantly at home in their bohemian circle, but revolution is in the air, and as society begins to fracture, she is forced to choose between her heart and her head. She loves her brooding cousin, Yasha, but he is wild, destructive and devoted to revolution; Horace Wallick, an Englishman who makes precious Faberge creations, is older and promises security and respectability. And, like many others, she is drawn to the mysterious, charismatic figure beginning to make a name for himself in the city: Rasputin.

As the rebellion descends into anarchy and bloodletting, a commission to repair a priceless Stradivarius violin offers Inna a means of escape. But which man will she choose to take with her? And is it already too late? A magical and passionate story steeped in history and intrigue, Midnight in St. Petersburg is an extraordinary novel of music, politics and the toll that revolution exacts on the human heart.

Vanora Bennett is the author of two acclaimed novels,Portrait of an Unknown WomanandFigures in Silk, and an award-winning journalist. She has contributed to theLos Angeles Times, theTimes Literary Supplement,The Times(London), and the BBC. She lives in North London with her husband and two children.
