WILL WAR DEAL THE CRUELLEST BLOW OF ALL?

Russia 1911: Young British agent John Kirby comes to Russia to work and to explore a new and exciting country - not to fall in love. But an invitation to the Tsar's ball changes all that. After an evening of dancing and romance, John and the Tsar's eldest daughter, Olga, are totally captivated by one another.

Summers of tennis parties and picnics with Olga follow - life could not get any better. Until a cruel blow is dealt in 1914: John is forced to return to England and Olga and her family are caught up in the bitter and bloody war.

Will John and Olga ever be reunited? Can their love survive the odds? Or will tragedy, pain and longing destroy them both?

The Summer Day is Done was previously published as Woman in Berlin.
