(From the publisher):
Some families are fated to live out their lives among the drama and turmoil of great events.
Such are the Korolevs.
As the Russian Revolution threatens to engulf them all, Prince Dimitri and his family flee for their lives.
From the heady artistic excitement of Paris in the twenties to the looming horrors of the Second World War, they are storm-tossed by events and by their own tumultuous emotions.
