I started listening to this story before going to bed as I always do. I usually listen for 15 minutes before falling asleep. This time I could not stop listening and finished the whole recording. It is 2:55 am now. Even though I have a busy workday tomorrow, I felt that I had to write this review and thank Audible for this gift.

This is an amazing story and performances of the cast were extraordinary. I am recommending this audiostory to my family and my friends.

Again, thank you Audible. 👍

He was Grand Duke Michael, handsome brother of Tsar Nicholas II. She was the beautiful twice-divorced daughter of a Moscow lawyer. Their scandalous love affair and their runaway marriage to Vienna in 1912, trailed by the Tsar's secret police, caused uproar in Russia and was the talk of all Europe.

Great story but too long ...

3 out of 5 stars

This is a great story to understand the early 19th Century Russia. I have always been fascinated by the Romanov stories.

However, the book is too long and occasionally sounds like a gossip magazine from early 1800s.

The authors get carried away with details such as where Michael parks his car, which hotel room they stayed in, what they ate some night, etc.. These details make the book unbearable at times . I got the impression that authors tried to show off with how much detail they know about this couple.

I would still recommend the book. If there is an abridged version, that I would strongly recommend.
