Gregory Maguire
Master storyteller Gregory Maguire surpasses himself in a dazzling tour de force as he spins a mesmerizing, magical tale for readers of all ages. Elena Rudina lives in the impoverished Russian countryside. One of her brothers has been conscripted into the Tsar's army, the other taken as a servant in the house of the local landowner. Her mother is dying, slowly, in their tiny cabin. And there is no food. But then a train arrives in the village, a train carrying untold wealth, a cornucopia of food, and a noble family on their way to visit the Tsar in Saint Petersburg, a family that includes Ekaterina, a girl of Elena's age.
