About the Author

Winds of October 

is the first novel in Alan Gibbons’ 

Revolution trilogy

To follow in spring 2018:

Reason in Revolt  and Spurn the Dust

 

A fight to the death, a desperate robbery, a search for a home as mounted Cossacks chase down protestors around her - Raisa is coming of age in Petrograd amidst the rapids of revolution.

‘Don’t be scared, my sister. This is it. 

This is the revolution.’

As if to give physical form to the momentous events, an armoured car came racing down the road, twin red flags fluttering. It was welcomed with roars and cheering...

So begins an odyssey through the climactic events in Russia between February and October 1917. Winds of October charts the hopes, dreams and loves of five young participants in one of the greatest moments in history.
