The Romanov dynasty had a dark and blood-stained history, and much can be said to its discredit—but in the Grand-Duchess Elizabeth we see the one shining light in a dark night; for by her acts of true charity and practical service to her fellows she redeemed whatever had been shame-worthy in the long record of the Romanovs.
Although E.M. Almedingen did not know the Grand-Duchess personally, she had opportunities to talk with people who had been her intimates. This is a sensitive and convincing portrait of a woman whose life was enriched by a deep happiness, ennobled by a profound sorrow, and fulfilled in its selfless service to the sick and suffering people amongst whom her destiny led her. Her tragic and violent death enhances rather than mars the record of a life which was indeed “an unbroken unity”.
