9780143115076: The Romanov Bride: A Novel

The bestselling tale of Romanov intrigue from the author of The Kitchen Boy

Book groups and historical fiction buffs have made Robert Alexander's two previous novels word-of-mouth favorites and national bestsellers. Set against a backdrop of Imperial Russia's twilight, The Romanov Bride has the same enduring appeal. The Grand Duchess Elisavyeta's story begins like a fairy tale-a German princess renowned for her beauty and kind heart marries the Grand Duke Sergei of Russia and enters the Romanov's lavish court. Her husband, however, rules his wife as he does Moscow-with a cold, hard fist. And, after a peaceful demonstration becomes a bloodbath, the fires of the revolution link Elisavyeta's destiny to that of Pavel-a young Bolshevik-forever.

About the Author:

Robert Alexander has studied at Leningrad State University, worked for the U.S. government in the former U.S.S.R., and traveled extensively throughout Russia.

From AudioFile:

Alexander's novel breathes historical accuracy. It is told in the alternating voices of Pavel, who has dedicated his life to overthrowing the Romanovs, and the Grand Duchess Elisavyeta (Ella), who eventually becomes a nun dedicated to helping the poor. Pavel is a fictional character, but his story could be the story of any poor Russian who becomes a believer in the Revolution. As the voice of Pavel, Stephan Rudnicki delivers a perfect Russian accent and a convincing tone of inevitability about his life. As Ella, Gabrielle de Cuir reads with no accent and often is so overly dramatic that she reduces the dialogue to banality. S.S.R. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
