This is the 3rd book in this fascinating series - The Ringing Cedars of Russia. This book tells us even more about Anastasia's thoughts on many subjects and also Vladimir's experiences during his visits with Anastasia and his many adventures in connection with her.
This book contains an account of an armed intrusion into Anastasia's taiga location with some really gruesome descriptions.
Vladimir sees his child for the first time and is astonished at the way Anastasia is rearing their child. He is sometimes aghast at what happens to the child, but at the same time the child remains happy and contented.
Vladimir gets an invitation to a school where the children work at their own pace and virtually do their own thing; in fact they are even building their own school. These children are learning much faster than by traditional teaching methods, and they all seem very bright and happy. They actually cover the 10 year Russian school programme in just 2 years.
This book, like each one in this series, is a source of inspiration and fascination regarding the power of love to put the world to rights.
