KATHRYN HARRISON    Book Number: 85099    Product format: Paperback

With razor-sharp dialogue and complex characters, this is 'a stupendous work of historical imagination' according to Peter Carey. It is an atmospheric account of the last days of the Romanovs. The Mad Monk Rasputin has been murdered, his body found floating down the icy Neva River. In the belief that his daughter Masha possesses the mystic's gift for healing, the Imperial family summon her to wait on the sickly young prince, Tsarevitch Alyosha. But when the Bolshevik Revolution forces the Tsar to abdicate, the family and their attendants are placed under house arrest. Trapped together, Masha and Alyosha find unlikely solace in one another's company. From within the walls of the palace the two youngsters create a private realm of magic and love. The author acknowledges her debt of gratitude to 'The Master and Margarita' by Bulgakov and his 'characterisation of devilish high jinks.' 314pp in paperback.
