This book is set in England and Russia around the time of the Crimean War.
"But Kirov is the Emperor's man, through and through, and you mustn't believe everything he says. Oh, he believe it all right - and I dare say the Emperor even believes it himself. There's an honourable precedent for rulers not to let one half of themselves know what the other half is thinking."Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!
