Book Review

(by- Andrea )

After going to a book signing for Lost Roses by Martha Hall Kelly, I couldn't wait to start reading the book. The story is the prequel to the Lilac Girls, which I loved, so I was excited to learn about Caroline Ferriday and her background. At the signing, Ms. Kelly said readers liked Lost Roses as much or better than Lilac Girls.

I have to say they were both terrific, but I'm not sure I can pick one! I will say listening to the author talk about her book gave me an added perspective and made the reading experience more enjoyable. I felt more connected to the main characters in this book and thought they were well developed and easy to become invested in. The story revolves around three strong women Eliza, (Caroline Ferridays mother) Sophia (Elizas best friend who lives in Russia) and Varinka, who is Sophias nanny.

As war breaks out in Russia, each woman has a battle to fight. This is a story of love, friendship, and family that I had a hard time putting down. It would make an excellent book club choice.
