The space of love by V Megre( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third volume "The Space of love" starts with the notice that a group of robbers tried to hijack Anastasia and her son. In this book the reader gets to know many interesting things about Anastasias education and the role of nature, about the space of love and about her further fate. This book also deals about a completely new school, the forest school of the academic Michail Petrowitsch Schetinin. "A man who is free from aggressiveness, mercenaries, fear and many other later-introduced feelings radiates a light of love. It is invisible but it is greater than sun light. Its energy is life-giving. The Creator made it so that only a man is able to possess such a great power. Just a man, a man alone has an ability to warm up all living creatures. That's why they all long for man's attention."

My life by S. A Tolstai︠a︡( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One hundred years after his death in 1910. Lev Nikolaevich Leo Tolstoy continues to be regarded as one of the world's greatest writers. Historically, little attention has been paid to his wife, Sofia Andreevna Tolstaya. Acting in the capacity of literary assistant, translator, transcriber and editor, she played an important role in the development of her husband's career. Her memoirs which she entitled My Life - lay dormant for almost a century. Now the book's first-time-ever appearance in Russia is complemented by an unabridged and annotated English translation." "Tolstaya paints an intimate and honest portrait of her husband's character, setting forth new details about his life to which she alone was privy. She describes her extensive correspondence with many prominent figures in Russian and Western society, making My Life a unique account of late-19th- and early-20th-century Russia, with its cast of characters ranging from peasants to the Tsar himself. Her engaging narrative reveals not only her significant contributions to her husband's work but also her considerable talent as an author in her own right."--Jacket
The ringing cedars of Russia by V Megre( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Ringing Cedars of Russia," the second book of the Ringing Cedars Series, in addition to providing a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the story of how "Anastasia" came to be published, offers a deeper exploration of the universal concepts so dramatically revealed in Book 1. It takes the reader on an adventure through the vast expanses of space, time and spirit from the Paradise-like glade in the Siberian taiga to the rough urban depths of Russia's capital city, from the ancient mysteries of our forebears to a vision of humanity's radiant future
The energy of life by V Megre( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Energy of Life reasserts the extraordinary power of human thought and reveals the influence our thinking has - not only on our lives - but also on the destiny of our planet and the Universe."--Page 4 of cover
The new civilisation by V Megre( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New Civilisation, the eighth book of the Series, is not yet complete. The first part of the book, published as a separate volume, describes yet another visit by Vladimir Megre to Anastasia and their son, and offers new insights into practical co-operation with Nature, showing in ever greater detail how Anastasia's lifestyle applies to our lives. Describing how the visions presented in previous volumes have already taken beautiful form in real life and produced massive changes in Russia and beyond, the author discerns the birth of a new civilisation. The book also paints a vivid image of America's radiant future, in which the conflict between the powerful and the helpless, the rich and the poor, the city and the country, can be transcended and thereby lead to transformations in both the individual and society

Tolstoy and Tolstaya : a portrait of a life in letters / translated from the Russian by John Woodsworth, Arkadi Klioutchanski & Liudmila Gladkova ; with a foreword by Vladimir Tolstoy ; edited and with an introduction by Andrew Donskov by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lev Nikolaevich wrote approximately 10,000 letters over his lifetime -- 840 of these addressed to his wife. Letters written by (or to) Sofia Andreevna over her lifetime also numbered in the thousands. When Tolstaya published Lev Nikolaevich's letters to her, she declined to include any of her 644 letters to her husband. The absence of half their correspondence obscured the underlying significance of many of his comments to her and occasionally led the reader to wrong conclusions. The current volume, in presenting a constantly unfolding dialogue between the Tolstoy-Tolstaya couple -- mostly for the first time in English translation -- offers unique insights into the minds of two fascinating individuals over the 48-year period of their conjugal life. Not only do we 'peer into the souls' of these deep-thinking correspondents by penetrating their immediate and extended family life -- full of joy and sadness, bliss and tragedy but we also observe, as in a generation-spanning chronicle, a variety of scenes of Russian society, from rural peasants to lords and ladies. This hard-cover, illustrated critical edition includes a foreword by Vladimir Il'ich Tolstoy (Lev Tolstoy's great-great-grandson), introduction, maps, genealogy, as well as eleven additional letters by Sofia Andreevna Tolstaya published here for the very first time in either Russian or English translation. It is a beautiful complement to My Life, a collection of Sofia Tolstaya's memoirs published in English in 2010 at the University of Ottawa Press
