This was a captivating pre-quel to The Kitchen Boy, exploring the myths surrounding this man who rose from a Siberian peasant to become a direct spiritual advisor to the Tsar. Told from the perspective of his daughter who was intricately involved in his life and got caught up in the fray as the murder plot was carried out with her as a witness. Maria was close to her father and struggled with the gossip as she learned to understand him and his life more fully. Well developed characters and situations made this both an eye-opening and engaging read.
