What the Critics Say

"[A] robust historical....The author's extensive knowledge of Russia allows him to invigorate the narrative with telling details that bring the aristocrat Ella, who eventually became an Orthodox saint, convincingly to life....this is a compelling journey through momentous events that wraps up with a fine, deeply moving finale."

Excellent historical novel.

I love this book. My family is Russian but this was a whole side of the revolution that I knew nothing about. I love historical novels that are well researched like this one.
