 Published  July 2015.  Parthian Books


Summer 1916. Precocious Alyosha Alexandrov has never known anything but a life of privilege. He spends his days avoiding study and pursuing pretty young maids. But Russia is poised on the brink of epochal political upheaval and within a year Alyosha is separated from family, security, and the innocence of youth.

Set against the backdrop of the Russian Revolution and its aftermath, spanning the turbulent years from 1916 to 1924, Petrograd is a vast, ambitious novel from an award-winning writer.


The first in a trilogy, and winner of the Wales Book of the Year Award (Welsh Language).  


A compelling, convincing story of the Alexandrov family as they struggle to adapt to the ravages of war and revolution.
