The turning
Gloria Whelan
Children's Fiction WHELAN

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Several new entries continue favorite sagas and series. Gloria Whelan continues her history of Russia, explored through the fictional characters first introduced in Angel in the Square, set in 1913 under Tsar Nikolai II (in a starred review, PW wrote, "Whelan shows both sides of the Russian revolution in a sympathetic light"). In The Turning, readers meet Tatiana, the granddaughter of Georgi, the narrator who faced Germany's WWII invasion of Russia in Burying the Sun. The story picks up just months before the August 1991 coup attempt that led to the collapse of communism in the Soviet Union, as Tatiana, a dancer in the Kirov Ballet, decides whether to defect.
