Spanning 80 tumultuous years, the incredible story of a peasant girl who became the Red Princess of the Russian Revolution.
Anna Mayakovsky is now a penniless old woman living in London, but no one can take away the vivid memories of her past: the Count who lifted her out of poverty; the Count’s son, Misha, whose baby she bore; Paul, the ruthless factory owner who became her lover — and her deadliest enemy; Sasha, the tough but gentle peasant who converted her to revolution. And her aristocratic husband whom she adored, but could never love as completely as a woman should love her man.
Now Anna finds she has one more battle ahead of her: her great-granddaughters Jennifer and Sonia wish to lock her away in an institution. Anna knows this would kill her. She will have to fight back . . .
