Kitty Fisher escapes to her great-grandfather's remote cabin in America, after a devastating revelation makes her flee London. There, on the shores of Lake Akanabee, she discovers the spectacular jewelled pendant that will lead her to a long-buried family secret . . .

A fictionalized tale of Tatiana Romanov and Royal Guard Dmitri Malama started during WW 1, through the Russian Revolution and the massacre of the Royal Family until Dmitri's death in NY State in 1975.

Wonderfully woven fact and fiction made told by a master story-teller made this a very interesting read.

Star crossed, love lost and found, the compromises of life, all told with characters you find yourself cheering on.

Another haunting mystery based on the doomed Romanov family. Good one.

This is a good, theoretical story about the Romanov family in Russia. It includes a lot of actual historical information. I would recommend it. 3 1/2 stars
