  • By Dr. M. Scott on 20 January 2013

    This is a complex book that says a lot about the unexpressed longings and romantic needs of so many of us. Some will wish for a careless separation that will allow them to carelessly indulge in forbidden pleasures while they can. Others will see the responsibilities that lovers must hold towards each other to turn their relationship into a lasting one of mutual respect. Whichever way you turn after reading this wonderful book, you are sure to feel emotionally stripped bare and flogged.

    At times this feels like an epic story, transporting the reader around the world, and set in a time I knew little about. The writer creates beautiful backdrops and makes you want to know how things will work out for the heroine. My issue with the book is that things move on far too quickly, so I never really connected with the characters. This left me wanting more and at times it felt like the author had run out of steam, hence the 2 stars.I would ignore any reference to 50shades as this is an unfair comparison and for me spoilt the developing story. With a few tweaks this could be a 4 star. Give it a try and see if you agree.

    A super tale, I thoroughly enjoyed the breadth of the novel, the romance and the adventure. A highly recommended read!

    This book was an enjoyable read and I particularly liked the detailed research the author had obviously undertaken about the events in Russia and the Baltic states prior to WW1. The end was slightly predictable and a bit cheesy but overall I enjoyed the book.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I gave insight to the lives and wove an interesting tale. I couldn't put it down.

    At first did not realise I had read it previously but I so thoroughly enjoyed it again SECOND time around.

    This book is "Fifty Shades of Grey" for everyone, not just "mummies". it is everything of "Grey", without the kinkiness. Anyone, men, women, children, who like romance, should read this. I bought it at 96p, how can you refuse?! It is filled with lust and love, it is the new film on release, starring Cristian Scott Thomas as "Fiona Mitchell" and Jim Broadbent as her russian lover, picture that combo and try and resist reading!!Let your primal urges take you over as you read and re-read this book. Take the day off work, put your feet up in your cubical with a cuppa, and read.
