This book draws you in to a fascinating time period in Russian history, much like this author's first 2 books. I had little knowledge of Russian history when I first began reading this trilogy, and it inspired me to research and want to know more and more. I had no idea how important this woman was to Russian and world history. Even though her path in life had been laid out before her, she chose a life of service to the common worker. I really admire the courage and strength of character it took for her to serve the very people who destroyed her family.
I hope that this book gives its readers a real light to follow when they are at a dark point in their lives. It taught me to have gratitude for all the things I don't even have to worry about in my daily life: food, health care, order in my community, and the right to vote for the people who best reflect our own values.
This is the third book in the series by this author. The other two are The Kitchen Boy and Rasputins Daughter. All are enjoyable. This novel tells the story of Pavel, a revolutionary and Princess Elizabeth Romanov. The way their lives intersect is told in alternating chapters. Russian historical fiction is hard to find and so I found this trilogy quite interesting for anyone who would like to know more about the Romanovs. Poignant and tragic, this is the story of a woman who could have done much for Russia but was stopped by hatred and revolution.
