Thank you for your comment. We did a little research and, according to the publisher, Wildside Press, this book has been pulled out of distribution. The publisher said that it is “more than likely a reprint of Marie: A Story of Russian Love.” Here is the URL to view a scanned copy of Marie: A Story of Russian Love on Google: http://books.google.com/books?hl=en&id=QCcVAAAAYAAJ&dq=marie:+a+story+of+russian+love&printsec=frontcover&source=web&ots=MjH9ws0ers&sig=gOWTX7w99gBzWGFVJdfHEx0HWOA&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=2&ct=result#PPA13,M1
Interestingly, the publisher also said that he believes both Marie and Marie: A Story of Russian Love are adaptations of The Captain's Daughter. Here is the URL to view the scanned copy of The Captain's Daughter: http://home.freeuk.com/russica2/books/pushk/cap/doch.html#3
We hope this information addresses your concerns.

You offer to post comments, but I don't see anyone else's comments. I am using this comment form from the webpage showing Maria the book by Pushkin. Forgive my French, but Russian is my native language and I know a few things about classical literature. Never heard of such work named “Maria” by Pushkin. You do not offer any link to investigate some more. Of course, my fellow Americans can rename anything: I once saw “Shakespeare on drugs.” But “Maria” by Pushkin? Something is not right about it, just like it is not right to ask for comments and not offer the webpage where such comments are posted.
I'll check in a couple of weeks to see what you have to say on your seemingly interesting website. So far it makes very little sense where you piled up most outstanding writers with… hmmm... who knows what.
