Customer Review

on 19 May 2003
I was recommended to read this book, firstly because it involves Dundee and secondly because it is an amazing story, made more so by the fact that it is non-fiction.
Eugenie Fraser takes us through the years leading up to the revolution in Russia and beyond. She details the family and Russain traditions that were so important in the 19th century and early 20th century. She weaves a picture of her family both Russian and Scottish and how they interact.
You read of acts of bravery that should only be in a work of fiction such as her pregnant grandmother being taken by sledge to plead for the life of her husband.
It is very difficult to put into words a discription of this book, all I would say is read it - I guarentee that you will love it.
