Janet M. HartleyJoanna Woods has put together the story with both dedication and ingenuity. She makes excellent use of the painful exchange of letters between Elizabeth and her father, and of Pavel's extensive correspondence and memoirs...this lively, readable account gives insights into the life of the English community abroad and Russian naval and military history, and vividly describes the impact that a change of regimes could have on the lives of Russian officers. Above all, however, this is a love story and a labour of love.
