In 1913 Russia, twelve-year-old Katya eagerly anticipates leaving her St. Petersburg home, though not her older cousin Misha, to join her mother, a lady in waiting in the household of Tsar Nicholas II, but the ensuing years bring world war, revolution, and undreamed of changes to her life.

"A young Russian aristocrat comes of age during the Great War and the Revolution. In 1913, 13-year-old Katya's life is good: she is about to join the Tsar's household with Mama, who has just been appointed Lady-in-Waiting to the Empress. Her best friend and foster child Misha, a young intellectual with revolutionary leanings, cannot dampen her enthusiasm with his talk of people's privations and dire predictions of war, but over the course of the next five years, Katya will experience the outbreak of war and both revolutions, and is eventually reduced to the life of a peasant." (Novelist Review)
