BOOK DESCRIPTION

In these final recollections, Baroness Sophie Buxhoeveden describes a side of Russian life that has been seldom touched on, namely that of the country life of the gentry in the years preceding the Great War. A country family, its friends and attendants are sketched against a background of provincial life with its simplicity alongside lavish hospitality, its lack of modern comfort but its old-fashioned luxury.

After a brief glimpse of society life in St. Petersburg, when the author came to know the Empress Alexandra, she gives, in numerous chapters, an account of her visits to the palace between 1904 and 1914, drawing intimate portraits of the Grand Dukes, Emperor Nicholas II and his consort, Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, and describing court life as seen through the eyes of an outsider.

* Please note that this is a quality, hard cover reproduction of the original 1938 edition of Before the Storm, complete with the original text and photographs.
