Unbreakable bonds of female friendship
In 1914 Eliza Ferriday is thrilled to be traveling to St. Petersburg with Sofya Streshnayva, a cousin of the Romanovs. But when Austria declares war on Serbia and Russia’s imperial dynasty begins to fall, Eliza escapes back to America, while Sofya and her family flee to their country estate. In need of domestic help, they hire the local fortune-teller’s daughter, Varinka, unknowingly bringing intense danger into their household.
In America, Eliza is doing her part to help the White Russian families, but fears the worst for her best friend.
From the turbulent streets of St. Petersburg to the avenues of Paris where a society to the mansions of Long Island, the lives of Eliza, Sofya, and Varinka will intersect in profound ways.
