Book Review: The Lost Season of Love and Snow

Not long ago, in a charming dream,
I saw myself — a king with crown’s treasure;
I was in love with you, it seemed,
And heart was beating with a pleasure.
I sang my passion’s song by your enchanting knees.
Why, dreams, you didn’t prolong my happiness forever?
But gods deprived me not of whole their favor:
I only lost the kingdom of my dreams.

The Dream by Alexander Pushkin

04_TLSOLAS_Blog Tour Banner_FINAL

Alexandra Pushkin is considered to be the father of the Russian Language. A rebellious lover of freedom he is a celebrated writer but what no one ever talks about is his wife, Natalya. Jennifer brings us into the 19th century Imperialist Russia and the incredibly romantic courtship between these two incredible historical figures. I have been looking forward to this book for a year and it didn’t disappoint.

What I enjoy about Jennifer’s is books is her attention to detail with her characters and this one is no exception.  With her attention to detail and history, she brings to life a woman who for over a century has been misunderstood.

With an air of War and Peace or Anna Karenina but with none of the over-narrated backstory. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy Tolstoy but seriously, a girl can only take so much backstory. What we do have in The Lost Season of Love and Snow is passion, romance and a whole ton of delicious drama.

Perfect for Valentine’s Day, I recommend getting your book now.
