If this novel came out in Russia during the Soviet era, the author could get a 10-year sentence just for writing it. The myth of the Bolshevik Revolution and its aftermath was tightly controlled by the KGB. Historical records were changed beyond recognition and newsreels passed as original were actually fakes, shot at the government-controlled movie studios years later. The only thing the Party couldn't erase was people's memories.Based on thorough research in private and public archives all over the world, the Russian Treasures series propelled Elvira Baryakina into the international spotlight. Today, she is one of Russia's most beloved authors, known for captivating novels about neglected historical events that shaped the future of the world.The year is 1917.

As a famous foreign journalist, Klim has a chance to escape the civil war unleashed by the Bolshevik Revolution, though now he feels like a first-class passenger on the Titanic, who has to save only himself or die. Time is running out, and Klim must make a fateful decision that will cost him dearly either way.Relive the Bolshevik Revolution as a free-spirited man who refuses to desert the woman he loves and decides to remain in the Land of the Soviets, fighting for their lives throughout the bloody struggles of the Russian civil war. 1.
