Found "A Magnificent Saga of Love and War, of Political Conflict and Imminent Change, of Two Women..."

The Crown and the Crucible by Michael Phillips and Judith Pella. Evidently the first in a series of four, this one set in pre-revolutionary Russia.

Anyone heard of/read these?

Evidently these authors also wrote The Stonewycke Trilogy and the followup Stonewycke Legacy (another trilogy). Also wrote The Highland Collection and a series called The Journals of Corrie Belle Hollister, of which I'm not sure what they're about.

According to reviews, they might be a more on the religious side. But I'll try anything once and I found this at a rummage sale today so I'll report back.

I will wait for you. I can handle some religion in a book but not if I'm being clubbed over the head with it.

What kind of rummage sales are going on at this hour of the morning?

I read a series that I really loved many years ago...like probably getting near 25. (Ugh). Set in Russia, HF, I'd love to read them again and see if I still like them:
