    1. This short middle grade novel is set in the early 1930s in an ethnic German community in the Soviet Union. The Kulak's Daughter is about a young girl and her family who are deemed "kulaks" -- or enemies of the people -- because they oppose communism. The novel is based on the life of the author's mother and the details and anecdotes ring true. This is not an era that many people in the west know about. The story predates the Holodomor (Stalin-orchestrated famine that killed millions of Ukrainian [...]


    2. Based on a true story, this is a fictionalized story of Stalin's plan to collectivize the farms of Russia no matter the cost. Told through the voice of eleven year old Olga (The Kulak's Daughter) it tells the horrendous story of what happened to those who failed to co-operate with the Stalinists - in this case, the father being sent to jail as a traitor while the rest of the family is deported to a transition camp in Siberia. While all of the story is based on actual events, the unfolding of one [...]



    3. See this review in its natural environment, Dani Reviews Things.I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review. This does not affect my review.Red Stone was a surprise for me. From the synopsis, I knew a bit about what I was going to read, but I didn't think I get as sucked into the story as I did.The story is narrated by Katya, initially 10 at the start of the book and just turned 12 at the end. Katya is the eldest daughter of a farmer in Federofka, Soviet Union (now part of Ukra [...]


    4. The Kulak's Daughter is genuine, heartbreaking, and powerful. It is based on a true story, which makes it even more sad. Although, readers should look forward to an uplifting ending. The beginning of this novel takes place at a farm, where a large family lives, including a little girl named Ogla. Everything is going perfectly for Ogla until her father's beliefs force the family to move somewhere terrible. Ogla's journey and unbelievable strength keeps the reader turning pages. I recommend this b [...]


    5. A wonderful story about the difficulties facing a family labeled as kulaks by the Communists and sent to Siberia. Olga was a pre-teen, the oldest of her siblings, forced to grow up way to early. Gabriele Goldstone did a marvelous job of bringing this based-on-a-true-story to life. Any readers, young or old will learn a bit of history and sympathize with Olga and her family.


    6. This book is so very true, imy class met the daughter of 'Olga', who is the author of the book. If you'd like to learn more go to gabrielgoldstone.


    7. Absolutely loved this book. It kept me up to the wee hours, weeping for Olga. A must read for middle graders looking to understand Stalin's insanity.
