Who is to Blame: A Russian Riddle Book Trailer
- produced for author Jane Marlow
Jane Marlow's debut novel is a beautifully detailed twenty-five-year saga of two families in mid-19th century Russia. The setting is Russia's vast grain fields and weaves a heart-wrenching and all too familiar story of the haves and have-nots, but, with a twist. Tsar Alexander II had just emancipated 20 million serfs from bondage and the haves are back on their heels in decline. The serfs remain in poverty and Marlow paints with words the "intertwining stories of love, loss, courage and pain against her backdrop of social upheaval.
A fascinating gift to the readers of this engaging historical novel is the attention to the details of the lives and clothing of a 19th century peasant girl. We decided on two video book trailers to promote her novel, one to set the story and time period, and another, Girls and Their Clothes, to give the reader a preview of the young Russinn girl's relationship with her clothes.
