A fictional memoir of tsarist Russia, told from the point of view of Mathilde Kschessinska, a ballerina who was also the mistress of Tsar Nicholas II. Mathilde's story, often overlooked among the drama of the Romanov family, brings a fresh set of eyes to a familiar tale. The author does take a few liberties, mostly extending the affair between Mathilde and Nicholas II after his marriage, but otherwise remains largely true to the history. A good read, definitely for fans of the Romanov family and Imperial Russia.
