When tsarist soldiers fire at a group of peaceful village protestors and kill his young bride, Pavel dedicates his life to overthrowing the Romanovs. Pavel's underground group assassinates the Grand Duke, changing the life of the Grand Duchess Elisavyeta forever.
Grief-stricken, Elisavyeta gives up her wealth and becomes a nun dedicated to the poor people of Russia. When revolution finally sweeps Russia, she is the last Romanov captured, ripped from her abbey in the middle of the night and shuttled to Siberia. It is here, in a distant wood on a moonlit eve, that Pavel is left to decide her fate.
Combining stunning writing with a keen talent for storytelling, Robert Alexander uncovers more of the compelling Romanov drama and intrigue for his many readers and all fans of historical fiction.
