The Red Scarf

The Red Scarf By Kate Furnivall

What an awesome story. Loved every minute of it. I wanted to run to Anna and rescue her from that horrible place and i wanted to help Sofia convince Vasily to help her rescue Anna.  The story is touching and sad and happy and heartbreaking,  of course everything you want in a good book.

The story set in Russia, during the reign of Stalin. The labor camps for so called “criminals” were harsh and torturous, similar to the holocaust camps. Sofia and Anna as slaves, living hour by hour, minute by minute. Anna is dangerously ill and Sofia decides that she must escape to find Vasily , Annas lost love, to help her rescue Anna before she dies.

Sofia  finds the town Tivil, where Anna says Vasily is living and falls in love with Mikhail who she thinks is Vasily. WELL you’ll have to read the story to find out what happens to Anna, Sofia, Vasily and Mikhail.  You won’t be able to put it down.
