Blood Red, Snow White by Marcus Sedgwick

This is on my side table, waiting to be cracked open. 

I'll never get through my "to read" list, but I have fun trying! 

Russia wakes from a long sleep and marches to St. Petersburg to claim her birthright.  Her awakening will mark the end for the Romanovs, and the dawn of a new era that changed the world. Arthur Ransome, a journalist and writer, was part of it all.  He left his family in England and fell in love with Russia and a Russian woman.  This is his story.
