On they went singing 'Eternal Memory', and whenever they stopped, the sound of their feet, the horses and the gusts of wind seemed to carry on their singing - Doctor Zhivago is the epic novel of Russia in the throes of revolution and one of the greatest love stories ever told. Yuri Zhivago, physician and poet, wrestles with the new order and confronts the changes cruel experience has made in him and the anguish of being torn between the loves of two women.

I bought this in order to read along with my edition by Vintage, translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, only to find that the photo is is completely misleading and it is a different translation. There seems to be no information about which translation this is.
