Waiting On Wednesday: THE JEWEL OF ST PETERSBURG

THE JEWEL OF ST PETERSBURG
by Kate Furnivall
[11 Novemer 2010]
Love and courage, revenge and heartache in the last days of the Romanov empire . . .
Russia, 1910. Young Valentina Ivanova charms St Petersburg's aristocracy with her classic Russian beauty and her talent as a pianist. She scandalises society when she begins a romance with Jens Friis, a Danish engineer. He brings to her life a passion and an intimacy she has never known.
Unbending in their opposition, her parents push her into a loveless engagement with a Russian count. Valentina struggles for independence and to protect her young sister from the tumult sweeping the city, as Russia is bound for rebellion. The Tsar, the Duma and the Bolsheviks are at each other's throats.
Valentina is forced to make a choice that changes her life for ever ...
It's been ages since I featured a historical book in this meme so I decided to fix that today! I really like the sound of this and I adore the cover - I can't wait for this one!

Oh, great choice! I love historical fiction, and this sounds like a great one. I've never read one about Russian history, though!
