BOOK DESCRIPTION

No better description of the gay, careless, artistic, sentimental life of an aristocratic family in Tsarist Russia in the early years of this century has ever been written than this simple book of reminiscences. The author paints a magnificent portrait of old Russia and readers will be delighted with her descriptions of balls, and life at the Russian Imperial Court. She enjoyed a sumptuous lifestyle and she knew many members of the Imperial Family and became Maid of Honour to the Empress Alexandra Feodorovna.

When the Revolution came her life was turned upside down which resulted in chaos, persecution and poverty. She finally escaped to Finland where the authorities threatened to return her along with thirty-two other refugees to Russia. It was the intervention of an American journalist which saved them, and the writer made her way to England which ends this deeply moving section of a fascinating story.

* Please note that this is a quality, hard cover reproduction of the original 1937 edition of The Russia That I Loved, complete with the original text and photographs.
