This was a life-changing book for me as a child. I was utterly fascinated by the depth and breadth of the home education of this aristocratic child. It opened up my mind like no fully fictional work ever could have.
Based on the author's great aunt, this story describes the life of a 19th century Russian girl of minor nobility, adopted by a relative and brought up at a vast country estate.
I recognized this book as soon as I saw the cover. I read it as a child many years ago. I'm currently enjoying reading it again.
