Gortner Ù 0 Review Narrated by the mother of Russia's last tsar this novel brings to life the courageous story. 5 huge stars to The Romanov Empress Historical fiction fans will not want to miss CW Gortner s latest novel I would also offer if you enjoy perfect storytelling involving an enthralling and strong woman this book is also for you The Romanov Empress is narrated by the mother of Russia s last tsar Maria formerly Minnie Feodorovna is born a Danish princess however while her family has rank due to title it is low on funds Her story begins when she is a teen and her sister Alix is about to marry the Prince of Wales son of ueen Victoria I find ueen Victoria especially fascinating so it was intriguing to hear about her from Maria s point of view Maria also is set for a royal marriage to keep her family s status and while it is not an easy or simple journey especially for her heart she marries the Romanov heir who later takes the throne The descriptions of the setting as she arrives in St Petersburg were absolutely mesmerizing Later Maria s husband dies and her son Nicholas is now the ruler of a disintegrating empire that is struggling in every way She attempts to guide her son but her efforts are futile with Nicholas wife and Rasputin having the emperor s ear The Romanov Empress is epic in its scope and the writing is exuisite while also being highly readable The rich setting is replete with opulence and grandeur balanced with war and extreme turmoil I savored this reading experience and Maria is a memorable and inspiring historical figure who falls in love with Russia and does her best to honor and uphold it It is a story of family sacrifice strength and ultimately love Thank you to Random HouseBallantine for the complimentary copy The Romanov Empress is now availableMy reviews can also be found on my blog wwwjennifertarheelreadercom
