Petra  Morsbach - Suddenly It's Evening


The fascinating story of a Russian Mother Courage

St. Petersburg, 1926: Ljusja is born as the daughter of an Orthodox priest – into a world that will disappear forever. As a young woman she looks for happiness and finds it with the wrong men. Ljusja lives in the middle of a rigid communist system, where she loves and laughs and suffers and struggles with herself and circumstances. Decades and several husbands and lovers later she looks back at her life and the country, the fortunes of which are, as so often, intertwined with one another.

Suddenly It's Evening is a record of a decline but it is also a story about an indefatigably fighting spirit, courage and wit, love and friendship.
