Über Vorablesen hatte ich die Leseprobe gelesen und diese hatte nicht zuviel versprochen.
In klarem in beschwingten Ton ging es weiter mit Episoden aus Grossfürstin Olgas Kindheit und die ihrer Geschwister. Die Charaktäre der einzelnen Familiemitglieder und auch der verschiedenen Bediensteten werde schön aber nicht überzogen dargestellt.

Am Anfang habe mich die zeitlichen Sprünge etwas irritiert aber die liessen auch mit voranschreiten der Geschichte nach. Es wurde nie langweilig da die Geschichte

What a great book! I am still amazed how much I liked it, so it's more like 4,5 stars. At the beginning I was a bit indecisive if I wanted to read that book.

Doch, ganz ordentlich - genau das Richtige zum Schmökern zwischen den Jahren! Die komplett fiktionalen Titel von ihr mag ich zwar lieber, aber das Wohl und Wehe der Zarentochter Olga war schon ganz amüsant zu lesen. Irgendwann werde ich wohl auch den ersten Teil der Saga, die "Zuckerbäckerin", noch lesen, aber nicht direkt im Anschluss.

Unlike in Durst-benning's other historical novels that I've read, in this one the main characters are all real historical people - Olga, one of the daughters of Tsar Nicholas I - & her family.
