KIRKUS REVIEW

Here history becomes a richly sensual experience. Though primarily a storyteller, the late Mrs. Almedingen does not neglect the social context, and, for all their flamboyance, the early czars -- from Ivan the Terrible to the beginning of the Romanov dynasty -- move against a solidly constructed background.
