Read in June, 2011

Historical fiction at its best with the ring of truth and brimming with little known facts about the Russian Revolution(s), told from the perspective of the peasant Pavel and by Emma, The Princess Elizabeth, sister to Queen Victoria and Tsarina Alexandra.
One unforgettable tidbit: Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany, at war with Russia (WW1), funded and backed the communist Lenin so that internal turmoil would help to beat Russia from within.
This is an unforgetable story and although parts are brutal and hard to read, it left me with insights and understanding. Highly recommended.
