Books
The son of an English father and Russian mother, Charlie Doig is a naturalist. He roughs it around the world collecting birds and insects. In 1914, he's on a mission in Russian Turkestan when war breaks out. Doig has no intention of volunteering to be killed, so returns to his family's home near Smolensk, and to the woman he loves, his cousin Elizaveta. At first they remain almost untouched by outside events. But imperial Russia is doomed and with it all the old certainties. When Elizaveta's fiance is assassinated, Charlie fulfils his greatest wish and takes her as his bride. The very next morning he finds two men approaching the house through the falling snow. Against all his instincts, he gives them shelter.
