Summary
Anastasia Saporito recounts in vivid detail the difficulties of her childhood as the daughter of White Russian aristocrats forced to flee their native Russia for refuge in Yugoslavia as the Soviet and German armies converged during World War II. Personal recollections form the basis of this memoir, but the trials and tribulations faced by this young woman shed light on the often hidden experiences of the once-wealthy elite of central and Eastern Europe as the Nazi war machine tore much of that region asunder
