Novelist Rifet Bahtijaragic traces the origins of the Doukhobor teaching and follows the Russian Doukhobors-the clan of the Evstafy Chernovs-through centuries of oppression in Russia to the closing chapters of the novel depicting their arrival in Canada in the late nineteenth century and settlement in the West.

However broad and ambitious the scope of his novel, the author never loses his feeling for individual drama and for ordinary human beings and their destiny in turbulent times. He offers a palette of characters defined by their Doukhobor heritage but also by their specific human qualities. The characters live in harmony with nature, with changing seasons, and with the harsh Russian weather. Only the Russian oligarchy is out of harmony with them. The Tsars and the Orthodox Church pose a constant threat to the Doukhobors and their right to choose their own path to God.

Persecuted by their rulers and cursed by the righteous in their own country, the Doukhobors are still quintessential Russians. They are Russian peasants who are embedded in their tradition and enthralled by old Russian songs which they bring to the New World.
