    Paperback ✓ Софья Петровна eBook ✓ Софья book, Петровна ebok, Софья Петровна KindleA book that in many ways captures the general state of The Great Terror of 1930's Soviet Russia Sofia Petrovna is also a haunting tale of a woman who has lost everything and clings to hope in spite of it A dark story the book explores a vast multitude of characters but it's Sofia herself whose rapidly changing life is the most interesting When people who she considers to never have done anything wrong begin to disappear getting arrested and taken away she convinces herself of one falsehood after another When it's her own son who is taken things for her begin to get nightmarish and in the pursuit of security and safety she does things that seem unthinkableWhile this book could also be considered a timeless look at how a person copes with loss and trauma Sofia Petrovna is ultimately a character study and a fictional portrayal of a very real and horrific event Chukovskaya herself was profoundly affected by her experiences with late 1930's Russia and alth

    Paperback ✓ Софья Петровна eBook ✓ Софья book, Петровна ebok, Софья Петровна KindleSofia Petrovna is a touching novel with its stark tragedies and complexities The frank tone in which Sofia Petrovna accepts and denies the circumstances within her life brings to life the reality of the Russian mindset during the purges of Stalin Although the author has repeatedly stated that she does not understand the aesthetics of her piece only that it portrays the honesty of that period in time it nevertheless holds the caliber of a written masterpieceThe reader is bound to feel for the mother though at times frustrated with her blatant madness It is about the power of denial the power of trust and most of all the power of a lie imposed on a people through governance
