A Russian Summer

   (1 review)
Genres: Romance
Sub-genres: Historical Romance

One summer well before the Bolshevik revolution, when Russia was a noble country, young Alexei, as was the custom of the time, left the city with his family, for the countryside.

It was a time of discovery, excitement, longing, and also sadness. A time in which he made new acquaintances and fought battles with himself, as the child he still was struggled free from many constraints into a world of dangerous possibilities.

This is the first book by James Keogh, his first essay into the world of published stories. It is a modest tale of life in another century, in another country, and as such is set in a world probably unfamiliar to the reader.
The style and language used are such as to reflect this different world. At the same time the theme the story evokes is one which is common throughout history. So whilst being a historical romance, it embarks on that familiar voyage of self-discovery, questioning, and struggle. A battle the protagonist engages in, both with his family, society, new found friends and acquaintances, and most importantly himself.

If you fancy something different then you're in the right place as this is a Historical Romance.

It is a modest tale about life in Russia, well before the Bolshevik Revolution.

We follow  Alexi, a young man as he and his family leave the City and move to the countryside.

What follows are great adventures as Alexi, a young child comes of age.

This story despite being Historical in nature is a time of discovery, longing, excitement and sadness.

A fantastic first story from @James K, I look forward to more fantastic writing from this author.

Response from the author:

Thank you for taking the time to review the story. I welcome all reviews with both good and even less good opinions, but this review was particularly good and I am so pleased you liked the story enough to recommend it in the review.
