This novel based on the Romanov's will leave you breathless. It goes seamlessly from the past to the future as Kitty Fisher attempts to piece together her great grandfather's life. A great grand father she never knew she had until she was left a cabin on Lake Akanabee in upstate NY.

She finds a piece of jewelry which leads her to want to know more as she is renovating the cabin.

Be sure to have tissues on hand as this is a story of soulmates who kept losing each other amidst the Russian Revolution--only to find each other years later both married to or living with other people.
