    "The Lost Season of Love and Snow" is the story of Natalya, the wife of famous Russian writer Alexander Pushkin. While I have not read anything by Pushkin (after reading this book, I might need to change that), I was familiar with some of the details of his life to include his untimely...

    First I want to say that I really need to read EVGENY ONEGIN. I've seen the movie with Ralph Fiennes and Liv Tyler and it's a fabulous movie. And, I own the book. I just haven't read it. However, after reading this book I truly need to find some time to get to EVGENY ONEGIN. Also, I qu...

    I always find novels set in Russia to be refreshing ? a bit of history that I am least familiar with and it always presents a new time period or historical figure to me that I know nothing about. The fact that a historical novel is set in Russia will give me an immediate interest in ...

    I knew nothing about Alexander Pushkin other than that he was a famous poet, I knew nothing about his wife or that he died in a duel defending her honor, so of course once I saw the blurb for The Lost Season of Love and Snow, I had to read it. What a subject for a novel! Despite bei...

    I will admit to knowing the name Alexander Pushkin. But I will also admit that I didn?t know much more about the man than he was a famous poet. I?ve long been fascinated with various facets of Russian history so I knew that I was starting from a good place with The Lost Season of L...

    This is my second book taking place in Russia in as many months. It?s also another look at a well-known historical figure through the eyes of his wife. Alexander Pushkin is the name I have heard but I?m not familiar with this works. Sometimes when this happens I find myself going b...

    This is an amazing book with a great story and interesting characters! As it turns out, based on factual history. Maybe I'm showing my ignorance here. But... I'd heard of Alexander Pushkin, but had never read his works, nor had I know that he had a wife! That's what really made the sto...

    3.5 Stars As a native Russian speaker who grew up with Pushkin's poetry I wanted to love The Last Season of Love and Snow. And even though I did enjoy it, I wasn't wowed by this book. I liked the fact that the story was told from Pushkin's wife, Natalya, point of view, the woman who...

    This is my first book review of 2018 and I couldn?t have picked a better book to kick things off with. Though I read this in 2017, I am ringing in the new year with love and snow! There is something about Jennifer Laam?s writing that I find so lovely and elegant. It?s hard to ...

    How does the saying go? This book killed my soul, here read it. Tis how I am feeling right now. I love Jennifer Laam this is the third of her books I have read. And it is as masterful as the others. Even more so that it hit me so emotionally. This is one of my biggest fears in life,...

    To be honest, I really need to take a deep breath here. Natalya is a young girl desperate to get out from under her strict Mother and to pursue her own study of Russian poetry. Her wish is granted when she captures the heart of Alexander Pushkin, the greatest Russian poet of the d...

    The Lost Season of Love and Snow tells of the courtship, romance and marriage of Alexander Pushkin, Russia's premier poet, and his wife Natalya Goncharova in the early 1800s. While her words can be quite descriptive of the Russian settings, I know I am swimming upstream when I say that...

    This was enjoyable and entertaining. Even if it was slow, but Natalya sufficed as a character that entertained and her thoughts were enjoyable, relatable and entertaining. She is different from the other girls, who loved her glasses. Her love for the art, and wish to be different. A...
