COLD DAWN AT NEVA RIVER
This Historical Novel is set in late eighteen hundred Russia and tells a tale about a family divided until forced to reunite in the face of adversity.
Taras and Eva Kadinsky work at the Saint Petersburg State Health Care Establishment; Eva as a senior nurse and Taras as a leading surgeon. Neither have time for their children, Zara and Andrei, who are brought up by an overbearing nanny, Olga Frantsev.
When the children reach their teenage years and have completed their education, their parents think it is time to discuss Zara and Andrei’s futures.
Zara takes up teaching as a career but soon learns that the changes in the Russian education system are conspiring to force her out. She is compelled to find another path to follow.
Andrei, restless, works in several mundane jobs, until one day he decides to take the opportunity afforded him. He begins work at the same hospital as his parents, as a research assistant to a top psychiatrist. However, the position he holds is not all it seems.
The estranged family find themselves in a difficult situation, when a friend, Alexei Petrov, informs them of an unforeseen problem. The Kadinsky’s are forced together by this cruel turn of fate, to overcome adversity.
