Product description

Review

Praise for ‘Tatiana and Alexander’:

'This has everything a romance glutton could wish for: a bold, talented and dashing hero, a heart-stopping love affair…It also has – thank goodness – a welcome sense of humour and discernable characters rather than ciphers.'
Victoria Moore, Daily Mail

Praise for ‘The Bronze Horseman’:

‘Pulling off the passionate love story embedded in a truly epic narrative is a difficult thing to do. Margaret Mitchell's ‘Gone With the Wind’ remains the blueprint for the genre, while Tolstoy's ‘War and Peace’ carries off the literary honours…it's quickly apparent that the Russian-born author Paullina Simons has the measure of this kind of epic romantic saga…She is able to make some powerful statements about the durability of the human spirit, but never at the expense of descriptive passages refulgent with power and beauty.’ Barry Forshaw, Amazon.com

Praise for ‘Tully’:

‘Pick up this book and prepare to have your emotions wrung so completely you’ll be sobbing your heart out one minute and laughing through your tears the next…Read it and weep – literally.’
Company

From the Back Cover

The Magnificent Conclusion to the Timeless Epic Saga

Through years of war and devastation, Tatiana and Alexander suffered the worst the twentieth century had to offer. Miraculously reunited in America, they now have a beautiful son, Anthony, the gift of a love strong enough to survive the most terrible upheavals. Though they are still young, the ordeals they endured have changed them--and after living apart in a world laid waste, they must now find a way to live together in postwar America.

With the Cold War rising, dark forces at work in their adopted country threaten their lives, their family, and their hard-won peace. To regain the happiness they once knew, to wash away the lingering pain of the past, two lovers grown distant must somehow forge a new life . . .or watch the ghosts of their yesterdays destroy their firstborn son.

The Summer Garden . . . their odyssey is just beginning.

at long last...the finale to the greatest love story, of tatia and shura....
i realy wasnt sure i wanted to read more due to the love story of the two being young....to see them grow old was something that took my mind a while to adjust to. i did enjoy the book, paullina is brilliant. no doubt about it. i look forward to more from her and the ending saga of the barringtons was emotional. yet again we are under the paullina simons spell. sleepless nights whilst we read'one more chapter-then i will go to bed', the endless thoughts going through your head wondering whats coming up next in the book, it's sad it's heart wrencing. it's happy. thankyou paullina and goodbye tatiana and alexander i've had immense pleasure in being drawn in to your lives!!!

'The Bronze Horseman' and 'Tatiana and Alexander' were two parts of a story that I thoroughly enjoyed - PS's characterisation and plot were faultless and it was with trepidation and surprise that I picked up this, the third novel to the series - I felt 'Tatiana and Alexander'finished off this tale nicely.
As much as it pains me to say, I just didn't enjoy it as much as the first two (...but then I LOVED the first two...) and found myself speed reading the flashbacks to Tatiana's childhood and wondering where else we could possibly be taken in terms of storyline. Parts of it were engrossing and everything I have come to expect of a novel from PS, but other parts were dull and lacking in movement. It also 'felt' different from the first two - whereas their love for each other made me weep then, in this part, I just felt it was all a little overdone and, dare I say it, bordering on tedious...
I know I'll be upsetting other diehard PS fans, but I feel I need to ne honest, buy the other two definately but save this one for a rainy day...

I'm absolutely enamored with this series!

In the first two novels in the Bronze Horseman trilogy by Paullina Simons, she throws our two protags, Alexander and Tatiana, into peril from the outset- starting with the siege of Leningrad during WWII on through their eventual escape to America in the late 1940's.

When the second book ended, I couldn't see how Simon's could squeeze any more gripping material out of Tatiana and Alexander's lives. But she wonderfully surprised me.

As the blurb for The Summer Garden states, their story was only beginning.

The Summer Garden starts where the story left off before the epilogue of Tatiana and Alexander(Or The Bridge to Holy Cross to you Brits and Ozzies!). Though Alexander has joined Tatiana and their son Anthony in the US, part of him is still in the gulag Tatiana rescued him from, unable to move forward and unable to allow himself to live after seeing, and causing, so much death and destruction.

But Tatiana is a fierce one and doesn't give up so easily. They travel all over the US trying to find a place they can call home, and along the way, bring him to a place of healing. I found this one to be much more sexual then the first two- almost erotic really- but that too had it's purpose, a metaphor if you will, for the spiritual melding their marriage so desperately needed after their time apart.

They travel all over the US trying to find a place to call home, and along the way, bring Alexander to a place of healing. They end up in Arizona, on a parcel of land Tatiana bought with the money Alexander's mother horded away after his father zealously gave up their US citizenship and hauled his family to the Soviet Union during the pre-war years.

Format: Paperback
'The Summer Garden' is the third epic love story of Tatiana and Alexander, who were first introduced to us in 'The Bronze Horseman'. While it's content and style aren't to the standard of it's predecesors, fans of the first two novels will be gripped by the shocking plot and enduring love of the two central characters.
'The Summer Garden' tells the story that 'The Bridge to Holy Cross' (or 'Tatiana and Alexander') only briefly skimmed over - the period from Alexander's return onwards. It is largely centred around Alexander's battle with the emotional scars of war and his son Anthony's determination to prove himself to his father. The result is a tense and emotional drama, although it is likely to be more thoroughly enjoyed by those familiar with the characters.
Every sentence in the novel oozes the sentimental and almost haunting, emotional style of Paullina Simmons, so fans of the author will not be disappointed. Tatiana and Alexander are recreated so vividly for the final saga, and Anthony and Vikki, who readers will remember from the last book, were also well constructed by the author.
The one disappointing aspect of the novel was that, in my opinion, it continued for too long, resulting in a somewhat scrappy ending. A number of characters were introduced in the last few chapters of the novel, leaving the reader with little time to get to know them, which basically created confusion. The ending was also a case of telling the reader a bit more than we needed to know - some things are best left to the imagination, especially when the reader is so well acquainted with and fond of the central characters.
