Meredith and Nina Whitson are as different as sisters can be. One stayed at home to raise her children and manage the family apple orchard: the other followed a dream and traveled the world to become a famous photojournalist. But when their beloved father fails ill, Meredith and Nina find themselves together again, standing alongside their cold, disapproving mother, Anya, who even now, offers no comfort to her daughters

What a great Russian tragic love story.
I found the begining somewhat slow as the author built the characters yet it is important for the depth of the relationships to be revealed. It wasnt until when Anya told her story did it really pull you in making it hard to stop listening. A great story about loss love and family.

Enjoyed this book, how the authors perspective captured the complicated and real yet personal aspect of a Royal life we all know about. Very interesting if you like the royal family history.
