the bronze horseman

This review is of one of my favorite books of ALL TIME. One of my good friends recommended this book to me, and it took me a while to get around to reading it. I honestly can't believe I waited so long. This book will change your life.


Book: The Bronze Horseman
Author: Paullina Simons
Genre: Historical Romance
Series: The Bronze Horseman trilogy
Pages: 810

You know how every once in a while, a book comes along that you fall head over heels into? You walk around in a fog for days on end because you can't fully separate yourself from the story. You are emotionally unstable because you are so fully invested in the outcome of the character's lives.

This is that story.

This is the most epic romance I have ever read. It is not a lovey dovey, everything turns out perfectly in the end, neatly packaged love story. No, this is a nitty gritty story of real love. The kind of love that perseveres through wars, the passage of time, and even across oceans. The kind of love that is tumultuous, painful, and raw. 

Tatiana is a young girl in Leningrad, sitting on a bench eating an ice cream cone, when she happens to glance up and see a handsome soldier in uniform. She feels drawn to him, and crosses the street to meet him. Crossing that street changes the course of so many lives.
Alexander and Tatiana have an instant connection. After a magical day together, they part ways. Tatiana heads home to her overbearing family, and Alexander back to the barracks. 
Their worlds are forever changed that evening, as the radio broadcasts a dire message: World War II has begun.

If you are prepared to lose yourself totally and completely for a few days, then read this book. If you want your life to be forever changed by a profound love story that spans decades, then read the whole series.

Be prepared. Seriously. 
Don't say I didn't warn you!
