This review is from: The Pearl: A True Tale of Forbidden Love in Catherine the Great's Russia: A Tale of Forbidden Love in Catherine the Great's Russia (Hardcover)
I truly enjoyed Smith's latest book Former People. Tremendously fresh and painful story with strong characters who were trying to survive in a society that loathed them. The Pearl us a gripping and upsetting story about a forbidden love affair between a high aristocrat and his serf. Beautifully told and incredibly sad.
