There is a lot that happens in this novel and it took some concentration to keep it all straight. I was still invested to find out how each of their stories would play out. Publishes on April 9, A beautiful story about the ugly truth of war. A tale full of courage, determination, strength, compassion, Hope, beauty, and love! Martha Hall Kelly has written A compelling book that is simultaneously elegant and brutal I think for me all the characters in this book were more relatable, and I felt compassion for all of them The book is set during WWI and mainly focuses on the atrocities in Russia Eliza and Sofya became friends while at boarding school in Switzerland, Sofya is related to the Romanoffs family Varinka was not born into privilege as these other ladies were she came to know Sofya when she went to work for the family One of my biggest takeaways from this book was how untouched America really has been by war Eliza was strong and compassionate and I admired her loyalty and altruism This really was historical fiction at its finest, this book made me feel as though I was right there with these ladies during WWI, I felt so much for each and everyone of them and bonus I learned some things along the way!

Eliza is one narrator, her aristocratic Russian friend, Sofya, is another and finally Varinka tells her side of the story as a Russian peasant. The lives of these indefatigable women cross in ways that none of them could have imagined prior to the world changing events of their time.
There is opulence juxtaposed with abject poverty. There is elation set side by side with deep despair and all three women suffer tremendously. Eliza, Sofya and Varinka are distinctly different people from different backgrounds but, oddly, their voices sound the same. Lost Roses is a treat for fans of Lilac Girls. View all 25 comments.

I found Lilac Girls interesting but I was not as ecstatic as others when singing its praises. Once again, Kelly uses multiple voices to tell the story. This juxtaposition works well, for example, when Eliza is able to see the Russian discontent while th I found Lilac Girls interesting but I was not as ecstatic as others when singing its praises.
As with Lilac Girls, the Ferriday story is the weakest of the bunch. Eliza was a true friend to the Russian emigres but her story lacked the drama of what was transpiring in Mother Russia and later in Paris. Sofya and Varinka are both fictional, but it is their characters that interested me most. Varinka, especially, showed the moral dilemmas facing ordinary Russians during the upheaval.
Anyone who enjoyed Lilac Girls will definitely appreciate Lost Roses. My thanks to netgalley and Random House for an advance copy of this book. View all 7 comments.

Eliza is a friend of Sofya's family and lives in New York and Connecticut. I enjoyed this book and found it to be an accurate portrayal of life in Russia, France and the US during this period. My wife read this book before me and was appalled at the way the Russian aristocracy treated the peasants. She did not like it as much as Lilac Girls. But I found it to be an honest portrait of the corruption and extravagant lifestyle that led to the revolution.

Turbulent times bring about much upheaval, destroying lives, making people make choices, decisions, that are often life threatening, and ultimately move in directions they never thought possible.
In this book, Lost Roses, we take a step back in history and meet Caroline's mother, Eliza. The story focuses on three women, Eliza Ferriday, a New York socialite, Sofya Streshnayva, a relation of the Tsar and a clos Turbulent times bring about much upheaval, destroying lives, making people make choices, decisions, that are often life threatening, and ultimately move in directions they never thought possible. The story focuses on three women, Eliza Ferriday, a New York socialite, Sofya Streshnayva, a relation of the Tsar and a close friend of Eliza's, and Varinka Kozlov, a girl hired by the Streshnayva family to help in the household.
It is and the world is teetering on the brink of war. Tensions are high, people are starving, and in Russia, upheaval is on the horizon as the Tsar is about to be overthrown and life for those associated or related to the royals is not only changing dramatically but also many are finding that their lives are ending. Sofya and Varinka are in peril. Sofya and her family, because of their proximity to royalty and Varinka, daughter of a well known fortune teller, because she and her mother are under the thumb of two evil revolutionaries are in danger. They all find themselves caught up in the turmoil and unrest that threatens their very lives.
Meanwhile, in America, Eliza worries and does all she can to secure the safety of Sofya, knowing her friend and family is in a grave situation. Eliza Ferriday was a true friend. She it is who we come to know not only as a friend but also as a compassionate woman who so understood the plight of her dearest friend, but also that of those who were able to escape and come to America, particularly to Southampton New York. She did all she could to find her friend but she also did all within her power to aid those Russians so fallen from their previous status, to find jobs and new lives here in this country.
The author weaves a story of danger, a story of friendship, of love, done so well that the characters find their way into you heart and mind. She makes them all come alive, giving authenticity to their feelings, their struggles, and their will to live. This is a story of wealth, a story of a fall from that pedestal that many had experienced before the Communists came to power. It is also a brief look into the lives of the peasants living under the Tsar and how their lives were bitter and oppressive.
Russia was ripe for revolution, and when it came, no one living there was ever the same. As always, it is so wonderful to learn of things that are unknown in our history. Ironically, my husband's family owned homes in Southampton not too far away from the places mentioned in this book. It is always so interesting and riveting when one makes that connection to a place they once lived.
I highly recommend this book to all of those who love history and superior story telling. View all 28 comments. When I found out that a prequel to Lilac Girls is coming out, I was very excited and I could not wait to get my hands on it. And, oh boy, I am so glad I got a chance to read it early, before the publish date. I enjoyed it so much that I read it in one day.
I simply could not put it down. I love historical fiction, and any book about the Romanov family will make my heart skip, but this one made my hear skip and flutter all over the place. Martha When I found out that a prequel to Lilac Girls is coming out, I was very excited and I could not wait to get my hands on it. It sucked me in from first pages, and I just could not get enough of the characters, the beautiful descriptions, and the emotions it made me feel while reading this book.
Lost Roses is a story of three women from three different worlds. Eliza, an American, is best friends with Sofya, a Russian aristocracy, family to the last Romanov tsar. Verinka is a Russian peasant girl living in poverty during Russian Revolution. These three women so different from each other have more in common than we could ever imagine. There was not one dull moment in this beautiful story and I highly recommend this book to all the historical fiction genre lovers. View all 6 comments.

The book has actually been on my TBR for quite some time and I even own a copy of it, but unfortunately, I have struggled to find the time to read it which hopefully will be rectified soon. This time around, the story is set against the backdrop of World War I, though technically, the Great War only plays a peripheral role, as most of the story takes place in Russia, with a narrative revolving around the events leading up to the Bolshevik Revolution in — a peasant uprising that eventually overthrew the imperial dynasty and ended the rule of the Romanov family.
Meanwhile, after having returned to her hometown of New York, Eliza endures a tragedy of her own, but through it all, she continues to do her part in helping the Russian immigrants who successfully fled from the revolution to America, while at the same time, she continues to hold out hope that her friend Sofya and her family will also be able to escape the turmoil wrought by revolution as well as the vestiges of war. With the story narrated mostly from the alternating perspectives of Eliza, Sofya, and Varinka, each woman lends a distinctive voice to this captivating tale of endurance and survival during a turbulent period in history.
Going into this book, I had very limited knowledge about the Bolshevik Revolution and the resulting turmoil in Russia at that time, so I definitely appreciated the tremendous research that the author Martha Hall Kelly did in order to bring that historical event and all the other ones to life. The storytelling here was top-notch, as I truly did feel like I was being transported back to that time and place, living through the harrowing circumstances that Sofya and her family faced.
The portrayal of the horrors and violence suffered by those caught up in the uprising felt so real that I actually felt a chill run through me while I was reading those particular scenes. As for Eliza, I actually felt that her story was the least interesting of the three, though I did love her fierce personality and compassionate spirit. This is historical fiction at its finest: well-researched with the historical events incorporated seamlessly, plus a compelling story as well as wonderfully developed characters — a balance that is not easy to achieve in books like this one where it is necessary to strive for authenticity historically while still maintaining great storytelling.
Emotionally, this story resonated with me deeply, especially with its portrayal of family, love, hope, friendship, and most significantly, resilience. The one warning I would give is that the descriptions of the atrocities of war were gut-wrenching and, truth be told, difficult for me to get through, but I understand the necessity of including these scenes for us to understand the devastating impact of such history and as a lesson to never let them happen again.

I was very excited to get my hands on this due to all the high praise of the author's previous work, Lilac Girls. I had not read that book as I had genre fatigue at the time , but I jumped at this one because I felt like WWI fiction isn't as prevalent and I spent a great deal of time studying Russian history in college.
The story is told in what is now a familiar format from three different perspectives. I I was very excited to get my hands on this due to all the high praise of the author's previous work, Lilac Girls. I went back and forth a lot with these characters, but ended up being confused the most by Varinka. The Good - This was a very well researched book, where I felt it almost got too bogged down in detail at times, but since I'm a huge history nerd that didn't bother me. What I liked the most was that these were voices we don't hear from a lot. I think this era of history is even more "important" than the 30's and 40's because this is what sets the stage for all that is to come.
So often, in my opinion , this era is overlooked and I think it's a shame because there are so many wonderful stories to be told. What didn't work for me - I went back and forth on these characters a lot. Likeability isn't an issue, it was more believe-ability. I felt some of Eliza's story was rushed in parts most likely to try and keep the story moving since it already clocked in over pages. I've seen some complaints about Sofya and her family caring more about parties and things than the plight of their people, but to me that was historically correct.
It's hard NOT to want to yell at them because they are so blind to the suffering of their people, but when you're sheltered from that your whole life, how can it be expected of them to think differently? Although, admittedly I felt it troubling as well. Also, Sofya's trek across wartime Europe with a cart and a horse was a little farfetched.
Especially, given her upbringing. Varinka is the one that puzzled me the most. I had difficulty juxtaposing her character before Max and after Max. There were plenty of opportunities for that right to be wronged and her stubbornness seemed odd to me, particularly as she moved to Paris. Overall, this was a good book, but not anything I would yell from the roof tops about - and that's okay.
Many, many others loved it and I'm sure there will be many more! View all 13 comments. Lost Roses is a prequel to the excellent Lilac Girls and focuses on Caroline's mother Eliza Ferriday and her work in assisting White Russian Emigres as well as a another pair of storylines about her good friend Sofya who gets caught up in the revolution and a peasant girl Varinka who is working for Sofya's family just prior to it.
I am fascinated by the the legacy of strong principled women in Caroline Ferriday's family tree and I am excited to learn more about them all. The author is evidently working on another female ancestor who was an abolitionist and activist just prior to and during the Civil War so this is an amazing family and I am really excited to read the next book!

Told from three different viewpoints, this story sweeps back and forth from Russia and America as WW 1 marches through Eliza, Sofya and Varinka's lives. I really liked The Lilac Girls but was kind of disappointed with this one. I had a hard time finding the pacing of this story and was never truly vested with any of the characters.

The slump was even affecting another book I was loving as well determined to finish that one soon too. Rambling haha but This book was a balm for the slump, and helped me claw my way out of it some. It feels good to finally finish a book and love it whole-heartedly after many duds and feeling stressed cause of work. This was just as well done and endearing as its predecessor was.
