Summary
This is the riveting story of two families separated in culture and geography but bound together by a Russian-Scottish marriage. It inludes episodes as romantic and dramatic as any in fiction: the purchase by the author's great-grandfather of a peasant girl with whom he had fallen in love; the desperate sledge journey in the depths of winter made by her grandmother to intercede with Tsar Aleksandr II for her husband; the extraordinary courtship of her parents; and her Scottish granny being caught up in the abortive revolution of 1905. Eugenie Fraser herself was brought up in Russia but was taken on visits to Scotland. She marvellously evokes a child's reactions to two totally different enviroments, sets of customs and family backgrounds, while the characters are beautifully drawn and splendidly memorable - container
