AFTER THE ROMANOVS

AFTER THE ROMANOVS

New from the New York Times bestselling author of The Romanov Sisters.

The brutality of the Bolshevik takeover forced Russian intellectuals, artists, poets, philosophers and writers to flee Russia with hopes of finding a new home in the City of Light. Unfortunately, upon their arrival many struggled in exile, only finding menial jobs. Former princes could be seen driving taxicabs, while their wives who could sew worked for the fashion houses, their style serving as inspiration for designers like Coco Chanel. 

Political activists sought to overthrow the Bolshevik regime from afar, while double agents plotted espionage and assassination from both sides. Others became trapped in a cycle of poverty and their all-consuming homesickness for Russia.
This is their story.
