This is not my usual cup of tea (I'd rather read history than historical novels), but this grabbed me from the start. So much intrigue, so many teasers. It read so well that I even resisted the temptation (rarely resisted!) to peek at the ending. And what an ending. Especially since the town of Gakova is mentioned; it has a tragic role in my family's history.
