As difficult as much of it was to read I loved Martha Hall Kelly s first novel Lilac Girls a heartbreaking story of the horrific things that happened at Ravensbr ck a concentration camp during WWII where unspeakable medical experiments were conducted on women But is not without hope and it is filled with the strength of women who make a difference Making it meaningful is that it is based on the life of Caroline Ferriday a woman who gave so much of herself to aid women who survived Ravensbr ck In this preuel to that book Martha Hall Kelly portrays the life of Eliza Ferriday Caroline s mother and I could see how much Eliza had inspired her daughter While I can t say that this one gripped me as much as Lilac Girls perhaps because of the horrors of the Holocaust it is in its own right a fantastic work of historical fiction that also is filled with hope and women who made a difference in other women s lives and I loved everything about itThe story is told with narratives of three women Eliza from an established moneyed family in New York Sofya from a well to do family related to the Tsar in revolutionary Russia and Varinka a poverty stricken girl from the Russian country side From WW I and the Russian Revolution from New York to Paris to cities in Russia Martha Hall Kelly takes us on a journey back in time from 1914 1921 and to the places where these women s lives crossIt is clear from her notes on her research and her travel that this is a well researched work of historical fiction I love that she tells us who some of the characters were modeled on reminding us that this is a work of fiction yet it reflects so much about the time and places she takes us to It is also a story loss loss of loved ones loss of home but a story of friendship of family and of the generosity and goodnesses of women who care I can hardly wait for her next book which will take us to the time of the Civil War with Caroline s great grandmother s story
