Book Description

Annaveta Travotsky, a young girl in 1913 Russia, is poised at the dawn of womanhood.

In the span of a few short weeks, Annaveta finds her world turned upside down. Prevailing over trauma, tragedy and loss she moves on, but the guilt and rejection she carries from past abusive relationships, cause her to struggle with feelings of unworthiness.

Her heart holds her back from receiving the love of the one man who longs to protect her.

As her past catches up with her, Annaveta flees to St.Petersburg, a place where she seeks safety. However, unrest in Russia makes the country ripe for an uprising, where terrorist groups like the Black Hand are flourishing. In the middle of this city filled with turmoil and rebellion, Annaveta and Alex discover a murderous plot devised by members of the Black Hand.

When terrorists threaten their lives, she faces a choice:
Hold onto the lies of her past or
believe in the power of love.

3.0 out of 5 stars Full of heart, and by no means slow! August 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is by no means slow!

It has a strong forward momentum, that's for sure.

This book is a good read that is full of heart. The Russian/German history was very interesting, and I loved the peasant side of life. The author puts in German and Russian bits of culture every now and then that added enough to the book to keep a historical, cultured feel to it. The author really did her research in everyday life, I feel that was obvious. For that, I'd say it can be a fun time, especially to anyone with this heritage. And I'd never heard of watermelon syrup!

Something is always happening. Often really big events will occur within just a few pages of each other. Although that is generally a good thing, I felt that after awhile it worked against the story. Sometimes the progression became unbelievable. (For example, someone is shot in the shoulder, the bullet is taken out, sewn up, and he goes sledding on a steep hill with no issues or pain. After sledding onto a frozen river, he pulls a person out of the frozen river with no reference to his shoulder. It didn't seem plausible.) That constant change and challenge of Annaveta led to a real lack of detail that would have enriched the story. Because the focus of the writing seemed to be action, it led to a lot of 'telling' and very little 'showing' in the writing. Besides that, poor Annaveta never got a break!

In all fairness, the book picks up a lot at the end. Once she becomes a nanny, I was more motivated to read. To give the author credit, I felt for Annaveta and wanted her to be happy. Annaveta had a decent personal progression, She was by no means flat, but very dynamic. I did enjoy the Christian undertones, but they led to an ending at the book that I did not like.

5.0 out of 5 stars love and adventure in store for you June 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Lorna Faith's book, "Answering Annaveta," is a book you won't want to put down. Suspense will carry you from one chapter to the next. You'll fall in love with Annaveta and Alex, watching their relationship unfold. You'll applaud their perseverance despite mistreatment and injustice. You'll love those characters who support them and hate their enemies. And in the meantime you'll understand where they get their strength. I am looking forward to their next adventure. Seriously, you need to read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Historical Fiction September 14, 2014
By Joan H.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I usually read contemporary fiction, but this historical debut novel by Lorna Faith kept me turning the page. Set in pre-World War I Russia, Answering Annaveta is the story of a young girl from a Russian peasant family. When tragedy strikes, she flees to a colony inhabited by German immigrants. There she finds love, but because of her past, she finds it difficult to overcome a sense of unworthiness.

The author certainly did her research into Russian history. I felt a sense of what life must have been like for both Russians and Germans during that time period. This is the first book of a trilogy and I look forward to future publications by this author.
