Item description for White Nights, Red Morning (The Russians, Book 6) by Michael Phillips & Judith Pella...
The Tragedy of Bloody Sunday Left Its Stain Upon the Nation, and No Character Will Go Untested by These Turbulent Times.
As the year 1905 draws to an end, great changes sweep through Russia. The tragic events of "Bloody Sunday" usher in a sequence of massive and paralyzing national strikes that eventually force the tsar to turn his government into a constitutional monarchy, and it appears that the radical element has finally won.
But for Anna Fedorcenko, the overwhelming tragedy of that fateful day was the slaying of her beloved husband, Sergei. While her loss is a painful struggle, it is Sergei's sons who are most dramatically affected by their father's untimely death. Andrei, the youngest, becomes driven to see his father's death avenged, and thus his boundless energies are aimed toward the downfall of the monarchy. Yuri, the oldest, is also grief-stricken, but he approaches it with characteristic confusion and uncertainty and finds he cannot support his brother's revolutionary fervor.
As Russia plunges from World War I into the ensuing civil war between the Bolsheviks and an army of White Russians comprised of nobility and others opposed to Lenin, the family of Anna Fedorcenko is caught in the middle of conflicting national interests. Will their faith and love be strong enough to help them survive?

The Russians -Excellent Novel Series Nov 8, 2007
Love this Novel series! I purchased this set for my mother's birthday, she is an avid reader and expects high quality writing. She loved them; her friends loved them and so do I! Full of historical informations, but not to the detriment of a great story!
How Does She Do It? Aug 21, 2004
I don't know how Judith Pella continues writing such excellent books one after another. This was another excellent book but I really missed Sergei. I know he died in the last one but I still couldn't get it through my head that he was gone!I was so attached to him throughout the series. This book focuses more on Sergei and Anna's sons, Andrei and Yuri. Andrei pursues his revolutionary ideals, while his older brother takes on the Federcenko name and becomes a respectable Russian doctor. Each of the characters face numerous obstacles in a country that is slowly crumbling to pieces beneath their feet. Another excellent read in the series. The story line never faulters and the characters never become dull or uninteresting. If you loved the first five in the series, then you will definitely love this one as well.
Excellent as always Aug 23, 2002
This novel is as well-written as the first and the storyline keeps the reader interested. Five stars for each book in the seven-part series.
A must read for all ages of any gender! Jul 27, 2000
"The Russians" series is by far the best historical fiction I have ever read. Judith Pella(and Micheal Phillips in the earlier books) weave a wonderful story of life during the Russian Revolution. These books don't portray an idealistic view of life during this time, but,rather, a very realistic view of what people went through in Russia during the revolution. I reccomend this series to anybody who loves Russian history, romance, intrigue, or just a good cry because this series has it all!
Historical fiction lovers will love this! Mar 28, 2000
The Russian series has been one of the best I've read. These are the kind of books that make learning history exciting! As you read this series, you become so involved in the charcters lives and feelings, it as if you have known them personally. But the authors have done extensive research to make the true history so accurate as the characters walk through life and we view it from their eyes.The struggles and hardships, as well as the joy and happiness, we feel it all. I love the way belief and faith in God,or the search to find it, is protrayed in the lives of each individual.This book is nearing the revolution and you see how family and friends may have had differing opinions and how they dealt with it. The whole series is excellent and keeps you riveted to the end!
