BOOK DESCRIPTION

NEW, EXPANDED EDITION!

No woman has been more noble, none has left so strong an imprint of her personality on the blood-soaked pages of Russian history.

- Grand Duke Alexander Michailovich

A strikingly beautiful granddaughter of Queen Victoria, Grand Duchess Elizabeth married Grand Duke Serge Alexandrovich, governor of Moscow and uncle to Tsar Nicholas II. Her life in Imperial Russia began in a whirlwind of dazzling social engagements, a world soon eclipsed by war, the assassination of her husband and the gathering storm of revolution.

Consciously adopting the Orthodox Faith, she thoroughly dedicated herself to fulfilling the Great Commandment of Love nursing the sick, rescuing children from Moscow's slums, establishing the Martha-Mary Convent of Mercy-and thereby attained sanctity even before receiving a martyr's crown.

Originally published in 1990, Lubov Millar's biography, the most extensive to date, brings together a wealth of source materials, including never before published letters by the Grand Duchess and more than 100 pages of photographs, to illumine the life of this extraordinary spiritual heroine and the turbulent times in which she lived. With the addition of new materials, this new 2009 edition contains over 500 pages, including more than 100 pages of photographs.
