    1. 2.5 stars rounded up for old times' sakeI came across a dog-eared copy of this years ago and thought it the most romantic thing my teenaged self had ever read (and that included Mary Stewart). Re-reading itwell, it's not so hot. But not so bad either. High melodrama all round, but a fairly decent account of the disastrous retreat from Moscow. (Wonderful schematic map of the scale of the horrendous losses here.) Interestingly, it's the secondary romance involving Valentina's sister that's the mor [...]

    2. Good romance set amidst the chaos of the Napoleonic Wars. Keep a tissue handy, but there is a good ending. Now, if only I hadn't misplaced my copy.Have found my copy and re-read it recently.
