4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating History, 20 Feb 2014
Tony Faber has closely woven the story of the Russian Imperial family with the fabulous Easter Eggs made for the czarinas by the workshops of Carl Fabergé ( of french huegenot descent ) in St Petersburg. Each egg is fitted into the story of the events and love lives of the czarinas - their children their background and the great love that existed between the Czars and their originally protestant european brides - all closely linked - of course- to our own Queen Victoria in one way or anothe.
