Author Alexey Tolstoy

Walking through the torments
The novel by Alexey Tolstoy (1882-1945) is written on the basis of a personal experience of the writer. The First World War, the Revolution and the Civil War - extremely fascinating background for two intertwining love stories of sisters Katya and Dasha and their chosen ones - Telegin and Roshchin. The feelings of the characters are tested for strength, and the novel itself, in the words of Alexei Tolstoy, "is the beginning of the epic, which all develops in the future."
