    One thought on “The Kirilov Star”

    1. I finished this novel last night and it was fairly good I had hoped the story would be about Russia and the time of the revolution, which it is at the beggining, but the story spans about 40 years and Lydia ends up living in England for most of her life The pace is slow, with long narratives so if this isn t your cup of tea, then maybe you should pass If you do enjoy a story that develops slowly and takes you on a journey of sort, then you should enjoy it There is love and plenty of tragedy, an [...]

    2. Downtown Abbey meets Dr Zhivago in Mary Nichols The Kirilov Star, an enthralling saga of heartbreaking loss, impossible promises and enduring love.The dark clouds of war had changed four year old Lydia Kirrilova s life forever A distant relative of the Romanovs, Lydia and her family had once led a life of luxury and opulence, but now their every waking thought is consumed by fear and danger When the lives of Lydia s entire family is claimed by this destructive war, the four year old child is hea [...]

    3. For the first time, I checked out an audiobook from the library It was a risky book, as I didn t read anything about it the only attraction was the clear Russian word Kirilov As an admirer of the Russian language and country, it seemed the perfect choice.Beginning this book with no expectations, I was quickly caught by the story and found it hard to turn the car off The reader had a gorgeous accent and, although I often disagreed with the way in which she read a sentence, I found her easy to lis [...]

    4. Right from the start, I couldn t get enough of this book It is, in my opinion, a cracking story from start to finish When four year old Lydia is orphaned by the Civil War following the Russian Revolution, she is adopted by an English diplomat After making an unwise marriage, she is abandoned in Ukraine, distraught because her baby has been taken from her At the start of WW2, she is rescued by Alex, a lifelong friend Many years later, after Alex s long imprisonment in Siberia and Lydia s second m [...]

    5. Thoroughly enjoyable romantic story about a young girl who is rescued from revolutionary Russia, the only one of her aristocratic family who escapes She is brought to England by an English diplomat and eventually adopted by him and his wife She leads a privileged life but never forgets her heritage and runs back to the new Russia with her lover Unfortunately, the new Russia is not quite the paradise they expected, so she frantically tries to locate her stolen baby before being rescued and sent b [...]

    6. Wonderful written and even knowing that is fiction you can t stop thinking that maybe somewhere down the road it has some truth in it.

    7. Really enjoyable book about a girl Lydia who escapes post revolutionary Russia,but who never lets go of what she left behind Recommended.
