"An engrossing account of the flight of the surviving Romanovs after the 1917 Revolution." Sunday Express "A gripping account of the Romanovs' choppy passage into exile. Welch's detective work has produced a book that is wonderfully witty and sad by turns." Mail on Sunday "The book's readability and telling use of detail are splendid." Spectator "A quirky and gripping vignette of 20th-century Russian history." Sunday Times "A gripping account of the Romanovs choppy passage into exile. Welch s detective work has produced a book that is wonderfully witty and sad by turns." Mail on Sunday "Yes, it's been told before, but the 1919 exile of the Romanov family from Russia, in which they sailed on HMS Marlborough, is a splendidly exotic story that is well worth another airing; and Frances Welsh does it grippingly here, with lots of details I hadn't come across before. I loved to read of the goods they brought with them, including rolled-up Rembrandt paintings, Faberge eggs and other treasures of the sort. What a pilgrimage, to be sure." Sunday Telegraph "A fascinating, poignant portrait of a bizarre collection of people caught up in the chaos of their exodus" Irish Times "A voyage of delight - revealing, fascinating and by turns shocking and amusing - a story so extraordinary that it reads like a novel." Lancashire Evening Post
