New edition – Preface by Tatiana de Rosnay, author of Sarah’s Key
A sentimental education set in tsarist Russia, with a foreword by the author’s grand-daughter, international best-selling author Tatiana de Rosnay.
An epic tale set in the Russia of the last tsars, and a promise of escape. Like all sixteen-year-old girls, Zinaida has a romantic heart and dreams of meeting prince charming. Will it be Alexei, the dazzling young man she met at an evening concert, or one of those intellectuals seduced by the spontaneity and intelligence of this unusual woman, who is caught up in her love life as intensely as she is with the transformation of her country?
