Publisher's Description

The Flames of Love and Revolution…
It is Czarist Russia, 1914. Karena Peshkev dreams of escaping her family’s country estate and attending medical school. But each year, as she watches her hopes of being accepted to the Imperial College of Medicine slip further away, she much content herself with working alongside her mother, the village’s Jewish midwife.
On a visit to her cousin’s sumptuous mansion, Karena gets a taste of Russian high society–and meets Colonel Alexsandr Kronstadt. Their attraction is immediate, but they can never act on it. Alex is meant for Karena’s cousin, the general’s daughter, a superior match politically and socially.

But when the accusations of Bolshevik conspiracy tear her family apart, Karena and her mother flee to St. Petersburg. The Okhrana–the Russian secret police–are convinced Karena is a Bolshevik traitor, in league with the rebel party’s leader. Certain she is guilty of murder and assassination, they’re determined to hunt her down. Alex risks his career and his life to protect her from afar, but will it be enough? Will he find her in time to save her from false accusations–and declare his love?
Vibrant with historical detail and richly woven themes of danger, romance, and God’s faithfulness, The Midwife of St. Petersburg is an eloquent tale portraying the beauty and madness of a country that is about to change forever.

    I loved this story . Just finished it this morning! Please say there is a sequel coming for this. We need to know if Alex and Karena ended up together or if Karena and her family has to flee to Finland. It is sort of sad that it ended the way it did if there is not more to come!!

    I loved it! It was absolutely fantastic. But I hated the ending. Unless it means there is a second book on it's way, then it's a good way to keep you interested. Because you're just dying to know how the story will continue. This book really is a good tip for friends and family. it will keep you occupied until you have read the last page!

    This book has both history and romance which I like. I appreciated the Russian history. The book kept me interested, yet I never got fully involved with the characters (that may be my fault), nor was I completely satisfied with the ending (is another book coming?).

    Excellent read. I couldn't put it down. I'm a huge fan of Linda Chaikin and this was one of her best, I can't wait for the next one to come out.

    Great story, lots of history. I only wished for a ending without so much guess work. A great beginning but what happens later.
