Book Review: From Gluac to Freedom (Book 3 in the Volga Flows Forever Series)
I am reviewing this book for MediaGuests.
This is the third book in the Volga Flows Forever Series and my favorite of the three. This is a truly emotional story of the Katya and the persecution her family endures under Russians. First under the czar and the under Stalin and the Communist regime. I felt like I was there with Katya the entire time.This is my favorite story of the trilogy. Sigrid Weidenwber did a wonderful job of telling the story of her life and Russia in a beautiful, heartfelt, and entertaining way. I recommend these books to anyone who enjoys history or loves a good story. Here are the links to my reviews of book one and two.
About the Author
Born in Germany in 1941, Sigrid Weidenwber remembers the horrific aftermath of fascism. At the end of the war, she found herself living under communism. After the Berlin Wall was built, she managed to escape the repressive environment with the help of friends and a French passport. To this day she does not speak French.
She holds degrees in medical technology, psychology and an Honorary Doctor of Letters from Concordia University of Portland, Oregon for her trilogy “The Volga Flows Forever.” In her trilogy she brings to life Catherine the Great in her multiple roles as monarch, woman, lover, mother, grandmother and head of the general staff of the army, in Volume one. The following two historical volumes deal with the Volga Germans brought to Russia by Catherine’s edict.
Three years ago she moved to Santa Rosa Valley, California from Portland Oregon. She has passionately embraced California together with her family that also resides here.
