Yelena's Leningrad

A novel by

When the citizens of Leningrad find themselves cut off from the world and the enemy is pressing at the gate, survival becomes a question of how high you can fly or how far you're willing to fall.

Violinist Yelena Petrovna is trapped in besieged Leningrad with her sister and their children. Yelena clings to music in an attempt to survive bombardment, freezing temperatures, starvation and the constant fear of Stalin's reprisals.

Can Yelena survive long enough to play Shostakovich's Seventh Symphony with the Leningrad Radio Orchestra to be broadcast to the world outside the frozen city?

Yelena's Leningrad challenges love, art and music to make life worth living even in the face of unspeakable horrors.
