Nadya is a mischievous kitchen girl in a Russian tavern. Having nearly drowned in the Iset River during the turmoil of the Revolution, she has no memory of her past and longs for the life she cannot remember. Then two young men arrive at the tavern and announce that Nadya's long-lost grandmother has sent them to find her. Yearning for family and friendship, she agrees to accompany them to Paris for the joyful reunion. Nadya eagerly embarks on her journey, never dreaming it will be one of laughter, love -- and betrayal.

The myth surrounding Anastasia is particularly interesting, perhaps because it has clear roots in history. This was a very well told version of "Anastasia" and the side story is incredibly touching.

I loved this book! I felt that this was a beautifully re-told version of Anastasia filled with love, adventure, and a bit of mystery that made it a great read filled with interesting twists that kept me reading non-stop till the very end.

“If these were indications of new love, as Sergei expected they were, then he was not surprised. All that scraping and arguing, the teasing and playful antagonism, could only mean on thing. It was a sure sign of attraction.”
