A Bozeman writer details the relationship between the Russian oligarchy and the kingdom of serfs in the mid-1800s, in her new historical fiction novel, “Who is to blame? A Russian Riddle.”
Author Jane Marlow delves into a story covering over 25 years of two families — one of noble birth and the other a family of serfs. In the novel, a couple struggling with poverty fights for love as their family fights each other, while a royal family deals with impending financial losses. The book covers a serious subject with some sweet parts.
