After a long, dangerous escape from Tsarist Russia, Artem Samsurov
might have reached sanctuary in Brisbane, Australia, but that
doesn't stop him trying to create a socialist paradise with his
fellow emigres and workmates. And despite getting entangled with an
attractive female lawyer, then charged with the murder of an
informer, he never loses hope that one day the revolution will
come. But when he returns to Russia in 1917 to fight alongside his
comrades, he cannot know whether it will succeed, or at what cost.
In this enthralling novel, Thomas Keneally brings to life a seismic
episode in world history from an unusual, intimate perspective.
Basing his story on a real figure, he captures what it was like
moment by dramatic moment for the men and women caught up in the
maelstrom, and explores the passions, ideals and terrible
compromises that fuelled it.
