Audiobook. An unexpectedly touching book about the Russian Revolution. This book follows the life of the German princess Grand Duchess Elisavyeta, sister to the Tsarina, who became a Russia saint after her own husband, the feared Grand Duke, was assassinated. On the other side of the coin is the story of her eventual assassin, Pavel. The compelling story brings the two lives, peasant and royal, nun and revolutionary together against a surprisingly intimate picture of the Russian Revolution and its effects on all levels of Russia society.
