Overview

Russia, a country shrouded in secrecy, staggering under an oppressive, warmongering ruler. But revolution is in the air, and things are about to change.

Natalie Tereshchenko works in the household of the Tsar and his family, but she is no ordinary Lady In Waiting ~ she is a niece of the Tsar himself, related to Queen Victoria and Catherine the Great ~ although it is a secret that no-one will admit.

As the Russian monarchy collapses, and the country descends into civil war, the royal family is sent into exile, and Natalie and her friends must accompany them. Natalie tells her story as though chatting to a friend. She reveals her insecurities and longings, her friendships and fears. She tells of the men who loved her and the one who deceived her, and, when the family is slaughtered, tries to flee. But she cannot escape her past, and is driven to make an agonising decision.

Meet the Author

I am Liz Mills - incredibly old, but (amazingly) still fully functional. I was born of gentle, loving parents in Southend-on-Sea in the county of Essex, England, famous for its pier, shingle beaches and seaweed. I now live in the euphemistically named Three Bridges, in West Sussex, with my writer fiancée Douglas.My childhood was undistinguished: expelled from posh school for being dim, I found my level in the state secondary education system, emerging with just enough basic skills to enable me to get a job … then another job … then another … and so on. At various points in my life I married and divorced a few times, producing two children, who are now adults and whom I love.Writing was always a hobby, followed intermittently, until I shook off the shackles of the capitalist slavery system and gratefully accepted retirement. I developed my writing skills by reading and analysing the work of others. From some, I learnt how to write, while others showed me the mistakes to avoid; I am grateful to all of them.At the age of sixty, as retirement loomed, I reinvented myself. I threw off the mantle that had stifled me for my whole adult life, and discovered, inside, the person I should have been. That person is now Elizabeth Audrey Mills, chatelaine and author of three full-length novels for adults/young adults, and a science-fiction series for young teens.All my books are available in all e-reader formats through Smashwords, and in paperback through Amazon Createspace.With fellow authors around the globe, I am also a founding member of the new e-magazine, INNOVATE, an exciting literary and artistic e-magazine. INNOVATE is devoted to bringing original and thought-provoking features from established and up-and-coming authors, artists and performers, as well as pioneering new frontiers with enhanced media.

    Surprisingly Good

    I was quite surprised at how good this story actually was. It's about 800 nook pages and was well written in comparison to other books i've read. While a fictional story of a lady in waiting to Romanov family there are elements of historical accuracy. It's an interesting what if story with a surprising ending.

    Good read.

    This is my first book by this author. It is about 800 pages. I too was compelled to research this portion of Russian history and found it to be very accurate. The detailes were sad. I was glad to learn that there is a sequel. The female lead and male lead are good people. The male is strong and protective. I am sad about the disrespect etc of The Family. Good read.

    A fascinating historical fiction woven so well that I was compelled to look up some details to see which were history and which were fiction.

    This book is not for young readers - surprisingly not so much because of the violence, of which there is quite a bit naturally, but very few violent scenes are described in disturbingly graphic detail. (Most are left to the reader's imagination.)  It is the many explicit sexual scenes that make this book unsuitable for young readers.  

    Which is a shame, because the novel brings history to life in a way that connects with the reader.  The players are made human with both their good sides and their faults revealed.  The book created the conflicting impressions that revolution was inevitable, but might have gone quite differently if the personalities or events had not combined in just the way they had.  Choosing to tell the story from Natalie's point of view made it very interesting.

    I found the book hard to put down - reading late into the night to see what happened next and so finished it in just a few days. Well done!
