The Summer Of The Barshinskeys

by Diane Pearson

The Summer Of The Barshinskeys Synopsis

'Although the story of the Barshinskeys, which became our story too, stretched over many summers and winters, that golden time of 1902 was when our strange involved relationship began, when our youthful longing for the exotic took a solid and restless hold upon us...' It is at this enchanted moment that The Summer of the Barshinskeys begins.A beautifully told, compelling story that moves from a small Kentish village to London, and from war-torn St Petersburg to a Quaker relief unit in the Volga provinces, it is an unforgettable story of two families.

The Summer Of The Barshinskeys Press Reviews

An engrossing saga...she evokes rural England at the turn of the century with her sure and skilful touch -- Barbara Taylor Bradford The Russian section is reminiscent of Pasternak's Doctor Zhivago, horrifying yet hauntingly beautiful * New York Tribune *
