SIMON CAREY, born and educated in New Zealand, moved to Australia to complete his tertiary education at RMIT in Polymer technology. He then worked in the petrochemical industry in various locations throughout Asia-Pacific.

When he retired from a successful corporate career, he was asked by a Sukhov family member to write their story. Having written for industrial and print media over many years, and coming from a long line of journalists, editors and newspaper proprietors, he readily accepted the project.

An avid traveler, snow skier, sailor and golfer, Simon and his wife Bronwyn live at their coastal property at Wilsons Promontory, Australia – the southern tip of mainland Australia. They also spend part of each year in Thailand and Canada.

Historical Fiction

1917 – Russia is at war against the Central Powers, the Tsar has abdicated, and Russia is being ‘governed’ by a shaky coalition of political interests.

In the cities starving people are queuing for food. There are strikes and protests, and soldiers are starting to mutiny and desert.

Pavel Sukhov is a prosperous merchant in Barnaul, a town in southern Siberia. He and his wife Maria, their three daughters and a young son, try to distance themselves from the political unrest gripping the nation.

But now Barnaul is about to install its first Soviet committee. Soon after, the town is engulfed in a catastrophic fire.

In Petrograd (St Petersburg), the Bolsheviks storm the Winter Palace, and inexorably, Russia slides into a devastating civil war. The Sukhovs’ world will be overturned. They will be forced to fight for their very survival.
