Natalya's mother expects her to make a match that will improve the family's fortune, and a poet who must survive from poem to poem does not qualify. Though this Russian beauty tries to be cautious, she ultimately follow her heart, and must face the consequences of a life around court and marriage to a genius.

From the start, Natalya (also called Natasha or Natalie) is a character to sympathize with. At first she lives under the thumb of her exacting mother. Then, life wasn't easy with an income that came in as a trickle, a growing family to feed, not to mention the dinners she must be hostess to, and the dances/masquerades she must attend. It was fascinating and heartbreaking to watch as she danced to the tune of the court, which roves to bring tragic consequences.

The plot of the story is evenly paced. There are a couple sex scenes, which while not overly graphic in detail, but are enough to make a sensitive reader uncomfortable. There are many side characters, people who influenced this woman's life, but the focus is where it should be: on Natalya.

This was an intriguing read about a historical figure I'd never head of before. I would recommend this to readers who enjoy a fictional look at a woman who was once looked down on.

I received a copy from NetGalley for reviewing purposes. ( )
