A Novel of Olga Romanov, Imperial Russia, and Revolution
by Bryn Turnbull
I enjoyed this author’s earlier title, The Woman Before Wallis, so I was eager to read this book. I can confidently recommend this novel.
This time, as can be told by the book’s title, readers are transported to Imperialist Russia and the Romanov family. The reader’s guide in this world is the Czar’s oldest daughter.
Many aspects of the family’s life that are familiar to history buffs are here. There is the family’s sheltered and luxurious existence along with the prince with hemophilia and, of course, Rasputin.
Readers know the eventual fate of the Romanovs. Still, when reading this tile, they will perhaps learn things that they did not know. For example, Olga nursed soldiers and, as a young girl, had her dreams of romance.
Those who enjoy historical fiction will want to take a look at this title.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin Trade Publishing for this title. All opinions are my own.
