Robert Mitchell

Author Robert Mitchellabout this book: Russia is a huge country. It is an old country. It is a country with many rivers, lakes and waterways. And on most of the banks of these rivers, lakes and waterways there are old religious buildings – churches, monasteries and chapels. The waterways were the highways of old. We travelled down the Volga towards St Petersburg several years ago, our small passenger vessel passing many of these old buildings. An ancient man in a small perilous rowing boat provided the germ of the tale and one of the monasteries gave me most of the remainder of the story, for the monastery contained a collection of old and valuable icons and other religious regalia. It wasn't long before I had to hurry and put my thoughts to paper, to tell the story of the old Cossack saved from an icy-water death, and of the secret which he had nearly taken to his grave. And who is to say that the icons so loved by Catherine the Great are not still hidden somewhere in the weather-worn walls surrounding that monastery, a white-walled building standing stark in the winter moonlight. I, for one, believe that they may be.
