This is a free event. Space is limited. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged.
Book groups and historical fiction buffs have made Robert Alexander’s two previous novels word-of-mouth favorites and national bestsellers. Set against a backdrop of Imperial Russia’s twilight, The Romanov Bride has the same enduring appeal. The Grand Duchess Elisavyeta’s story begins like a fairy tale-a German princess renowned for her beauty and kind heart marries the Grand Duke Sergei of Russia and enters the Romanov’s lavish court. Her husband, however, rules his wife as he does Moscow-with a cold, hard fist. And, after a peaceful demonstration becomes a bloodbath, the fires of the revolution link Elisavyeta’s destiny to that of Pavel-a young Bolshevik-forever.
