really liked it
Read from September 13 to 20, 2010

The Romanov Bride portrays the life of both Elisavyeta Fyodorovna,a sister of Alexandra who married an uncle of Nicholas II, and the revolutionist who ultimately killed her. I really like the fact that this book portrays both views on what was happening to Russia during this very tumultuous period.

After the assassination of her husband, Elizavyeta devotes herself to religious service (becoming a nun even) until the Communists arrest and then murder her in July of 1918. I found myself greatly admiring the portrayal of this woman in the novel (even with knowing next to nothing about if said portrayal is accurate). She seemed to live with grace, trying to do all she could to ease the suffering of her adopted people.
