    I think that this was one of Princess Radziwill's first books. It isn't as gossipy or revealing as her later books. She seems more careful not to raze any hackles. The book, never-the-less, has lots of little tidbits that make history of the Russian court more understandable. I think that this was one of Princess Radziwill's first books.

    Meh. For the experience of a first-person account of the Russian oligarchy written by a member of the aristocracy covering 19thC to 1914 this is somewhat amusant. For a historical perspective, it reflects very much the bias of a reactionary who loathed reform and, somewhat ironically, Nicholas and Alexandra.

Her portrayal of contemporary events was so skewed that I needed to regularly check her words against that of historians. This is NOT for someone with no knowledge of Russian history as Radziwill's facts, especially about events relating to Nicholas and Alexandra are recitations of rumors from their detractors and inaccurate at best and cruelly misinformed more so. No spoilers. They're all dead.
