Paper back
a Daughter of the Nobility- author Natasha Borovsky

A blend of fiction and history, authentic in each detail and overflowing with dramatic incident, A Daughter of the Nobility is a novel on the grand scale.

Born into a fairy-tale world of opulence and privilege, Tatyana Silomirskaya, a proud and rebellious descendant of Russia's founding princes, struggles to reconcile her ambition to become a doctor with both the expectations of her beloved but overpowering father-the Tsar's trusted adviser-and a passionate attachment to her Polish cousin Stefan. Young Tanya's conflicts are swept away by the cataclysmic events of history that dominate this engrossing novel: the Great War, the Revolution of 1917, the Boshevik seizure of power, and the subsequent civil war.

From her birth in St. Petersburg in 1897 until she leaves as a war nurse for the Russo-German front in 1915, Princess Tatyana enjoys a unique friendship with the eldest daughters of the ill-fated Nicholas and Alexandra-Olga, Marie, Anatasia, the incurably sick Tsarevich Aleksey, and her namesake Tatyana.

The Revolution of 1917 shatters Tatyana's world and that of the Tsar's family, separating the childhood friends forever. With her father's death at the hands of the Bolsheviks, Tatyana loses the protection of rank and family, sharing instead a desperate existence with her remaining loyal servants and her tutor and mentor, Alexis Holveg.

Bereft of her father, her close friend and namesake, and she believes, her heroic lover, Tatyana is freed at a terrible cost from the ties and constraints of the past to embrace the modern world far from Imperial Russia.
