This is a novel of the enduring power of love and commitment - against the forces of war and the equally dangerous forces of keeping the peace. From the bestselling author of "The Girl in Times Square", comes the magnificent conclusion to the saga that was set in motion when Tatiana fell in love with her Red Army officer, Alexander Belov, in wartime Leningrad in 1941. Tatiana and Alexander have since suffered the worst the twentieth century had to offer. After years of separation, they are miraculously reunited in America, the land of their dreams. They have a beautiful son, Anthony. They have proved to each other that their love is greater than the vast evil of the world. But though they are only in their twenties, in their hearts they are old, and they are strangers. In the climate of fear and mistrust of the Cold War, dark forces are at work in the US that threaten their life and their family. Can they be happy? Or will the ghosts of yesterday reach out to blight even the destiny of their firstborn son? Epic in scope, masterfully told, "The Summer Garden" is a novel of unique and devastating emotional power that spans two thirds of the twentieth century, and three continents.… (mere)

My god this series. I can't even and doubt I will ever be able to articulate how this series ravaged me.

The story and writing is full of emotion -love, hate, jealousy, sadness, anger, joy. Emotions of life.
The story and writing is full of actions -heroic, cowardliness, moral, immoral, right, wrong, gray. Actions of life.
Tatiana and Alexander's story is full of what other's have called "mundane details". I call it the details of life, or you know the little and big things that make us who we are. Soooooo mundane ;)
Look I get it this series is long, beautiful, and ugly. Just like life. It certainly is epic and requires a certain fortitude to get through.
It's real, it's reality and some don't want that from their books.
Tatiana and Alexander didn't always do what I wanted them to do but it's their story not mine and frankly the story was better for it.
I know some other's also complained about the flashbacks saying they were unnecessary. However, I read these books all together one after the other and when I read the flashback where Pasha is told to fear rust, I freaking lost it, cried forever. Could that been left out of the story, yes, but did it add a serious, crazy dimension, YES! All the flashbacks not only brought the ghosts back but gave me a deeper understanding of the characters which made me miss them even more and understand Tatiana even more because of this. (I lost a lot of my anger towards Dasha during the 3rd book flashbacks).
The characters from this series are going to haunt me for a long time.

*Sidenotes*
My god how much research do you think Paullina Simons did for these books! From WWII to Vietnam guns and politics, detail,detail,detail!

This series must, I demand it, be made to film. Maybe not movie but perhaps a Thorn Birds like format? They can't leave anything out, once again I demand it.

Whose naming the next goldfish they get Shura? I know I am. ( )

I love Paullina Simmons's work. Her prose is some of the best around and she really knows how to capture a moment or feeling in prose. The Summer Garden is a perfect reflection of her writing prowess.

Of course, I was already fully involved with the characters given that I had already read the two previous books in the series. In fact, The Bronze Horseman will forever be one of my most favorite historical fiction novels.

The conflicts in this book were so different than the first two. Yet, it felt so right for the 3rd installment. I breezed through this book in no time. I loved it! ( )

Alexander & Tatiana' Barrington's love story continues. War is still a huge part of this family's make-up. Another generation, Anthony is in Vietnam. Gruesome, heartwrenching detailed chapters. I am surprised at how Ms Simons is able to capture the war scene so well. Mesmerizing details. I am glad on how the Trilogy ended, hoping that a new chapter, with the children of these Russian Lover's will continue. There are so many more stories to tell! Loved it! ( )

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down,
Yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst...
For there, they that carried us away
captive required of us a song
And they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying,
Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
How shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land?
