South Russia, 1914. The world is at war, and revolution threatens. Against this backdrop of fear and danger, three young people search for hope and love.

Katarina Hildebrandt's tranquil life on her family's Crimean estate is about to change. Tutor Johann Sudermann has found true faith, but it will turn his life upside-down. Meanwhile, his friend Paul Gregorovich Tekanin, working for the revolution in St. Petersburg, finds it will demand his soul as well as his wit and strength.

Will they find the faith to weather the coming storm?

"There are moments in history when the whole world stops and turns a corner, in political, moral, and spiritual terms. The Russian Revolution was one such moment. This unique story of endurance and courage sheds light on the plight of Russian Mennonites at that time. Fortified by sterling research, this is a great story of restoration above all else, but also a historical record. A sweeping tale of love and loss, Calm Before the Storm carries the reader to other times and places, international intrigue at its best."
