It is 1914, and the world has been on the brink of war so often, many New Yorkers treat the subject with only passing interest. Eliza Ferriday is thrilled to be traveling to St. Petersburg with Sofya Streshnayva, a cousin of the Romanovs. But when Austria declares war on Serbia and Russia's imperial dynasty begins to fall, Eliza escapes back to America, while Sofya and her family flee to their country estate, where the local fortune-teller's daughter, Varinka, unknowingly brings danger into their household. On the other side of the Atlantic, Eliza is doing her part to help the White Russian families escape the revolution, but in this follow-up to Lilac Girls, Sofya's letters suddenly stop coming, and she fears the worst.
