The Lost Crown

The Lost Crown
Sarah Miller

One word review: Brilliant

More-than-one-word-"review" (Note: I'm not a book reviewer and I don't even play one on TV. I know! I'll call myself a book reactor, since, after all, that's what we do....react to books, right?)

I knew absolutely zero about Russian history before reading this. Sarah Miller brought history to life for me. She showed me history through the eyes of the living, breathing people who experienced it.

A brilliant, fascinating read.

Now I am pouting. I love Sara Miller. And I love history. And I didn't get the ARC of this beautiful book.

Feeling very, very sorry for myself.
