    The Russians series continues with the Dawning of Deliverance and this family saga continues to tear my heart out. The Fedorcenko Family are still struggling to keep it together as their beloved country is being torn apart. Pella once again brings history to life and I look forward to the next book.

    I absolutely love the first three books in this series and have read them multiple times. The next 4 installments were a huge disappointment. I read the original three, and now imagine the rest never existed.

    This was a well-written and truly interesting historical subtly Christian novel, which is part of a series set in Russia. At this point in the series, the novels are focused on the early 1900s when the Revolution really starts to take shape. All of the characters are still well drawn, and most of them are also likeable.

    Once again, the story of Russia as it approaches the revolution has come to life through the lives of Anna and Sergei and their family. Sorrow, love, tragedy and heroics draw out the deeper faith of each one, while their country teeters on the brink of full revolt. I love all of the historical facts: wars lost, heirs born, violent responses to peaceful demonstrations. It has been a wonderful way to understand this country that had been held up as the enemy most of my childhood.

    I read this over 15 years ago. Judith Pella was one of my top 3 authors of the time. Christian historical fiction - a wonderful genre!

    I really enjoyed the medical perspective of Mariana's nursing. Also, I never learned much about the war in Manchuria, so it was quite interesting to read about that.

    In this book, Mariana continues being more of the main character, along with Daniel. They both become involved in the war—Mariana as a nurse, and Daniel to cover the war for an American newspaper. I found Daniel's sneaking through a restricted zone especially interesting. It was very brave and daring to try something like that, but it was fun to read about. There was a scene with children doing a blood pact between each other. There were several kisses, from what I remember. A couple of mentions In this book, Mariana continues being more of the main character, along with Daniel.

There were several kisses, from what I remember. A couple of mentions of praying to a man who is considered a saint. Since parts of this book show is the war, there is quite a bit of describing fatal injuries and death experiences. Also, one of my favorite characters died. :( Unsurprisingly, we have a certain villain return to the story. And we are also introduced to Rasputin momentarily. I didn't like seeing him appear. If you know a little bit of the history surrounding his time, you probably know about the Tsar and his family being murdered around that time. I hadn't realized that the same tsar in this book had been the one murdered and so I can only assume, since we do hear from Nicholas the II, that we will hear of the family's death later on. So I am not looking forward to that part, if it does come. I really liked the love between a certain couple and thought they went really well together. :) The scene where a man was asking for the father's permission to marry the father's daughter was a little tense but the end was perfect! Also, one of the end scenes with Dmitri's POV was great. He finally did something worthwhile, and he did an excellent job, too! This book was interesting and I don't remember being bored at any point. 4 stars.

    Although she is a young Russian countess with the right to live as a socialite, Mariana Remizov chooses to go serve as a nurse on the front lines of war in Manchuria. Her old friend, American reporter Daniel Trent, faces the horrific dangers of war with her—while the dangers of old vendettas against Mariana's family are brewing back in pre-revolutionary Russia in The Dawning of Deliverance by author Judith Pella. This is my favorite book in The Russians historical ChristFic series so far.

This is my favorite book in The Russians historical ChristFic series so far. Granted, yes, the style is still pretty old-fashioned with some overdone outbursts from the narrator and characters alike, albeit those moments are brief and fewer than they were earlier in the series. And, no, I still don't find the romantic aspects to be this saga's strength. In this novel, the romance just has more inevitability than compelling chemistry, and it's twice in this series now that I've found myself preferring a guy who doesn't get the girl more than the guy who does. Even so, the sense of history and the political climate is still rich and intense. And while I've had issues with some key characters' development in the earlier books, I've been with these folks for so long now, and the overall plot has built so much tension, I actually felt for the characters this time as some crucial events finally came to a head. Honestly, it was the final fifth or so of the novel that nudged it over into 5-star territory for me, gripping me as a thriller would and wringing my bibliophilic core. I already foresee some of what's coming later, and I'm both nervous and anxious to see exactly how it'll all unfold from here.

    This was really good. We still are following the royal family though difficult times, losing both their leader and a son. Anna is still unsure about Daniel, because of his betrayal.

Thank you to my local library for having this book!

    I read this book many years ago as either a middle schooler or underclassman in high school. I adored the book and entire series then. This remembered adoration helped me make the decision to skip these books when reading through my collection four years ago. I read many books by both of these authors since then and gradually became aware of the glaringly obvious shortcomings of their authorship. These shortcomings infected every book I read by them.

    The characters are likeable and the story is fine. The author spends more effort furthering the plot than building an authentic, in-depth historical time period. Several things historically weren't quite right with the period (like having easy access to telephones, the ease of a women's emergence into the nursing field, working conditions in a war zone). True historical fiction lovers (like me) will be a bit disappointed. The characters are likeable and the story is fine.

    Again, Judith Pella's accurate portrayal of Russian history does not lend itself to an upbeat, light-hearted story. But it continues the journey of the Fedorcenko Family as Anna and Sergei's adopted daughter, Mariana, grows into a young woman and finds her place in Russian society. Beautifully written but a horribly sad ending. Again, Judith Pella's accurate portrayal of Russian history does not lend itself to an upbeat, light-hearted story.
