This is the January choice for one of my book clubs. To be honest, the title and the cover screamed chick lit to me and I was not very interested. #dontjudgeabookbythecover ! This historical fiction is about the Romanovs, which I have been obsessed with since I read Nicholas and Alexandra. Did another Romanov escape the mass murder? Tatiana falls in love with a soldier in the hospital where she is nursing and this is their story.
Totally captivated by this 'what if' tale. A fantastic combination of historical fact and fiction. Beautifully told, all the characters felt so very real. I knew the fate of the Romanov family but not all the details. This book filled me in and I was quite horrified by their barbaric and brutal end. So cruel! An absorbing and fascinating story. I just loved it!
It‘s a blizzard outside, for annoying reasons I was at work longer than expected, and getting home only about an hour before bedtime calls for extra snuggles before laying him in his crib 😍 don‘t mind me while I enjoy some much needed baby snuggles and an ebook!
Back at it ✌🏻 little man is with his Grandparents and momma‘s reading a book and earning some Christmas cash 💰
When there are 20 mph winds and it feels like 4 degrees outside you hold on tight to a warm cup and enjoy a few pages ☺️ I am REALLY enjoying this book. The story, the writing, the characters. Everything.
Next up! Any thoughts on this one you guys would care to share??
Very good. Gill Paul at her best as it was gripping and a beautiful story as she interweaved a love story with the political landscape of 20th century Russia and its surrounding areas. Highly recommend📖📚
Wine and book. Anddddd trying so hard to stay off of amazon prime day. Too much money spent already 🤦🏻♀️
There was great potential for this book to be awesome. Romanovs, secret marriages, etc but this one just felt a little flat to me.
The Secret wife by Gill Paul is free on kindle at the moment!! Recommend even though it is on my TBR as I have read Children and Women First, The Affair and No Place For a Lady by this author and love her work. I have got this in print as well now in Kindle form as I took avantage of this offer. UK ONLY ( I think😕) 📖📚
Had a hold (and my slippers 👠😝) come through today ✅❤️🔥
Beautiful and intricately woven fact and fiction to creat a story to shatter your heart in all the right places.
Absolutely loved this story! I cheered on the characters the whole way through. Mixes past and present in a way that has you not wanting to put it down.
