Book Image Did Not Load!Natalie is no ordinary Lady In Waiting ~ she is a niece of the Tsar of Russia ~ but it is a secret that no-one will admit. She works for Tatiana, second eldest of the daughters of Nicholas II, a family that lives in luxury while the citizens of Russia starve. But revolution is in the air, and things are about to change.
Natalie's only friends are the twins ~ Polya, shy and nervous, and Rada, the tough one. Together, they travel with the royal family into exile as the country descends into civil war, and when Polya is threatened, Rada and Natalie plot a murder to protect her.
As she experiences the decline of the Russian monarchy, Natalie also candidly reveals her own insecurities and longings, her friendships and loves. She tells of the men who loved her and the one who deceived her, and, when the family is slaughtered, shares the agonising decision she is driven to make.

About The Author

In my life I have done many things, been many people. Now, older but probably no wiser, I am retired from paid employment and write fiction to amuse myself. Two major novels have been published so far in ebook and paperback: 'Natalie Tereshchenko - Lady In Waiting' is the first of a planned trilogy following the life of a young woman caught in the middle of the Russian revolution, and, in complete contrast, 'A Song For Joey' is set in England in the first decades after World War Two, the years of hope and pop music.
