#BookReview: Gone by Nightfall by @deegarretson

Synopsis: A young woman is torn between her home and her dreams during the Russian Revolution.

It’s 1917, and Charlotte Mason is determined to make a life for herself in czarist Russia.

 When her mother dies, Charlotte is forced to put her plans to go to medical school aside to care for her unruly siblings. Then a handsome new tutor arrives. 

Charlotte has high hopes that he’ll stay, freeing her up to follow her dreams of becoming a doctor. But there’s more to Dmitri that meets the eye.

Just when she thinks she can get her life back, Russia descends into revolution and chaos. 

Now, not only does Charlotte need to leave Russia, she needs to get her siblings out too--and fast.

Can Charlotte flee Russia, keep her siblings safe, and uncover Dmitri’s many secrets before she runs out of time?


Rating: ★★★★★
My Review: This was an amazing look at the life of one teen trying to keep afloat a hospital her mother made, her siblings, and step-father.  All while keeping everyone out of the clutches of the secret police.  I had an amazing time reading this one and can not wait to see what else this author has in store for readers.  This was a great stand alone but I could see the author coming back and doing another companion novel.  I loved the characters and the story and just the fast pacing of the story.  If you are looking for a new historical title to dive into look no further than this one right here.
