Coming Soon!

From Splendor to Revolution

Coming Soon!  New from Julia P. Gelardi

Scheduled for publication on February 15, 2011 is my third and latest book, From Splendor to Revolution:  The Romanov Women 1847-1928 (St. Martin’s Press).

This sweeping saga recreates the extraordinary opulence and violence of Tsarist Russia as the shadow of revolution fell over the land, and destroyed a way of life for these Imperial women.

The early 1850s until the late 1920s marked a turbulent and significant era for Russia.  During that time the country underwent a massive transformation, taking it from days of grandeur under the tsars to the chaos of revolution and the beginnings of the Soviet Union.

At the center of all this tumult were four women of the Romanov dynasty.  Marie Alexandrovna and Olga Constantinovna were born into the family, Russian Grand Duchesses at birth.  Marie Feodorovna and Marie Pavlovna married into the dynasty, the former born a Princess of Denmark, the latter a Duchess of the German duchy of Mecklendburg-Schwerin.

In From Splendor to Revolution, we watch these pampered aristocratic women fight for their lives as the cataclysm of war engulfs them.  In a matter of a few short years, they fell from the pinnacle of wealth and power to the depths of danger, poverty, and exile.  It is an unforgettable epic story.
