"A young Russian aristocrat comes of age during the Great War and the Revolution. In 1913, 13-year-old Katya's life is good: she is about to join the Tsar's household with Mama, who has just been appointed Lady-in-Waiting to the Empress. Her best friend and foster child Misha, a young intellectual with revolutionary leanings, cannot dampen her enthusiasm with his talk of people's privations and dire predictions of war, but over the course of the next five years, Katya will experience the outbreak of war and both revolutions, and is eventually reduced to the life of a peasant." (Novelist Review)
