The October revolution of 1917 in Russia was a turning point that defined Russia as a nation It was one of the most dramatic events in the history of the Russia that had completely changed the lives of the people at that time The Russlander by Sandra Birdsell describes the live of a girl who was raised on a wealthy Mennonite estate It seemed like her parents were ignoring all the troubles in the outside world living a happy life together But nothing lasts forever and their happiness ended with the start of the revolution At that time Katya was only 16 years old Just like many people at that time she lost her family and friends who were killed by the Bolsheviks The conflict with the new leaders of the country started when her father refused to pay taxes and support his country and ended with this horrible tragedy Katya had lost everything that her family owned and was forced to move to another country where she had to start a new life from scratch Even though she had relatives living in Canada it was not an easy task Just like other immigrants to Canada she had to face many difficulties like the learning of the new language and adapting to the new lifestyle Many years later she came back to her homeland to visit the places she grew up in After more than fifty years she still remembered the tragedy that suddenly ended the happy life of her family People should value other things besides money and their estate Everyone should show more love and attention to the members of their family because nothing can be compared to the importance of the family to any person in the world It is unfortunate that in many cases people realize how important their family is after they lose one or more of their relatives The novel tells the reader that life takes many unexpected turns
