A Bend in the Stars (by Rachel Barenbaum) … historical fiction of WWI Russia

I have not read many books based on WWI-era Russia.  The characters are well developed and you will learn much about this period in time.  Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres and this one was a good book to add to my list of completed books.

The science aspect of the story should have been a little difficult for me.  However, the author does a great job of make very difficult concepts understandable.  And the fact that this kept me interested is a major accomplishment.  I’m not a huge romance fan and could have done without some of that aspect of the story.  However, this was an interesting read that improved my knowledge of this time in history.

Thank you to NetGalley and Grand Central Publishing for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
