    I have spent months trying to find an affordable copy of this book. I first read it while I was in junior high and fell in love with the story. I'm very into tragedies, because I tend to leave a piece of my heart with the story when I finish reading it. It is my favorite book to this day, even though I haven't read it since I was probably 14. The cheapest copy I've been able to find is $500.00 So if anyone has a copy I can borrow or if you know of a library close by let me know!

    It is hard to know which one I love better - this or Masha. Together, they form a fabulous two book series which recreates a bygone world of Russian aristocracy and a heroine who matures and finds unexpected happiness after a solitary and difficult childhood.

    I have vivid memories of borrowing this book, along with Masha and A Circling Star, from the North Melbourne library in the 1980s. I loved all three of them. It was with great delight that I discovered that they had been given modern reprints, and they my source of classic children's books could get them for me.It took me a little while to find time to reread both Masha and this one, but I loved both of them all over again. It was so nice to reconnect with Masha again, right through from an 8 year old, to the married mother she is at the end. Mara Kay has a lovely turn of phrase and touch with character and the books were a delight to read.I got my reprint copy of A Circling Star a week ago, and I'm very much looking forward to rereading that one too. I just have to get a couple of other things read first. I hope it won't be too long.

    Another childhood favorite. Sequel to Masha, and I was randomly compelled to re-read them both recently. They hold up well. This book has much more history than the first. It's about the 1825 Decembrist uprising (one of the lesser-known and much less successful Russian revolutions; very much like the group in Les Miserables) and includes many real-life figures as characters. Not much is known about the author, who was originally from Russia, but I'm guessing she was White Russian aristocracy. The sympathy is all with the royals rather than the rebels. It's an unusual angle, but still an interesting one. The love triangle is transparent but some of the friendships are remarkably layered.

    A nostalgic read of one of my childhood favourites. It is a lot shorter than I remember it being (funnily enough)! MarginNotes Books has reprinted both Masha and Youngest Lady-in-Waiting and I am hopeful they will reprint more of Mara Kay's books in the future. It is so lovely to have a copy of these at long last.

    The sequel to Masha, this deals with the Decembrist uprising of 1825 in Russia - harbinger of what was to come almost 100 years later. Like the companion volume, this survived a return visit happily.

    I'm almost sorry to find out there is a sequel to Masha ... it took me forever to get the first book through inter-library loan. :)

    Absolutely ridiculous plot, but I enjoyed it anyway
