howGet200The second novel in the Petrovo series

A war story told in intimate human terms.

Andrey enters his final year of medical studies in 1854 with an empty belly, empty pockets, and secondhand clothes held together by wishful thinking.  When Russia blunders into the misbegotten Crimean War, Tsar Nicholas recruits medical students to the front.  Andrey grabs at this flash of good luck.

Or is it his worst nightmare?

After the ink dries on the peace treaty, can he put the atrocities of the war behind him and pursue a meaningful life?  Can he cease being emotionally hamstrung and trust the woman who longs to walk beside him on his journey?
