Excellent and Engaging
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.
