KIRKUS REVIEW

This is an enchanting love story which shifts in scene between England and Russia, drawn from the ""commonplace books"" kept by the author's grandmother, as well as her letters, journals and marginalia of her Bible. The 19th century compassed her life; English born Ellen met and married a Russian, owner of vast estates, a literary man. It was a love match, and through the ups and downs of incredible wealth and the depth of poverty they were rich in their love. There is magic in the telling.
