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.

Review:

'a fascinating blend of history, spy story and love story, stylishly told.' -- Jennifer Taylor THE BOOKSELLER 'Marcus Sedgwick achieves a bravura opening, combining Russian folk tales, narrative history, fictionalised biography and employing the repeated metaphor of a giant rampaging bear to symbolise the political awakened Russian massives.' -- John Newman PUBLISHING NEWS 'at once engaging and told with an extraordinary sense of lyricism... an extraordinary novel that delineates with clarity of vision individual concerns against the great sweeping expanses of societal unrest. Sedgwick's acheivement is in fusing these elements into an absorbing and stimulating tale that cements his position as one of the most powerful and innovative writers of contemporary fiction for this age.' -- Jake Hope BOOKS FOR KEEPS 'a mesmerising retelling of Ransome's time in Russia during the Revolution, and should appeal to adults as well as Sedgwick's loyal band of teenage readers.' -- Danuta Kean THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 'masterly account of the Russian Revolution, seen through the fictionalised eyes of the author Arthur Ransome ... a doomed love story of power and passion.' -- Amanda Craig THE TIMES 'challenging, stark and uncompromising, a thoroughly satisfying read for older teenagers.' -- Philip Womack LITERARY REVIEW 'Marcus Sedgwick is writing with increased authority these days, and his Blood Red Snow White is a gripping story.' -- Nicholas Tucker THE INDEPENDENT 'It is fairy tale, love story and historical narrative innovatively woven together in an ambitious construct that will appeal to intelligent readers of 13+.' -- Dinah Hall THE DAILY TELEGRAPH '... a sophisticated novel, making convincing use of Ransome's voice... This compelling account, written with a rare sureness of touch, and tender about Ransome's relationship with his abandoned daughter, will reward readers of any age.' -- Nicolette Jones THE SUNDAY TIMES '... sophisticated... written with a rare sureness of touch.' -- Nicolette Jones THE SUNDAY TIMES 'Pacey as any spy thriller... a jolly satisfying read.' -- Venetia Vyvyan UNDERCOVER '[Sedgwick's] complex, beautifully written novel draws haunting contrasts between Russia's myth and its harsh reality.' -- James Lovegrove FINANCIAL TIMES 'a compelling and beautifully written story of a man caught up in extraordinary times. Very effective and worth reading.' -- Thomas Murphy FLIPSIDE '[a] gem that sheds light on a well loved children's author.' -- Rebecca Berry WRITE AWAY 'compelling... beguilingly written...' BOOKTRUSTED.CO.UK 'touching' FIRST NEWS 'An adventure novel infused with the power of myth and folk legend' FINANCIAL TIMES 'A brilliantly original novel' THE IRISH TIMES '...Blood Red Snow White shows a master storyteller at the top of his game' SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST
