“…a lively tale that takes the reader back through the shadowy mysteries that still surround the murders of the doomed imperial family of Russia…Laam [tells] her story with verve and imagination.”
–Kate Alcott, New York Times bestselling author of The Dressmaker

“Laam has not only created a captivating tale, but has woven a delicate and resonant fabric from the timeless threads of love and loyalty, betrayal and redemption.”
—Pam Jenoff, international bestselling author of The Ambassador’s Daughter

“Well-researched, clever and compelling…Jennifer Laam is an emerging novelist to watch.”
–Roberta Rich, author of the international bestseller The Widwife of Venice

“All the women are quietly fierce and tenacious…the reader will become enthralled by each story, eagerly turning the page to find out the fate of each woman…highly recommended.”
Caroline Wilson, Historical Novels Review

“Debut novelist Laam seamlessly interweaves the stories of three different women from three different times and places into a cross-century thriller… Romance and intrigue abound as each woman struggles with the burdens of history. Laam does a nice job of pacing as she fits the puzzle pieces together before the satisfying big reveal.”
Margaret Flanagan, Booklist
