A magnificent story of escape from danger – and of two people’s struggle to forge a new life in a strange land.
Daria Petrovna – cruelly separated from her first love, she was forced to leave the peaceful village that was her home and flee the violence of revolution.
Nicholas Fedorovsky – the handsome, worldly stranger they called the Man of Ice. He had once possessed everything and now had nothing.
Together they made the long and dangerous journey. By train across Siberia, fleeing Cossack regiments and Bolshevik partisans…by Chinese river steamer down the heat-wrapped, treacherous Sungari…by caravan into mist-veiled, mysterious Manchuria, towards the dazzling and decadent city of Harbin.
Even there enemies pursued them and almost succeeded in separating them forever. With love and courage they knew they could triumph – but is was many months before they won the freedom to be together in the new land they had made their own.
