"Is a Mennonite Merchant Able to Protect the Russian Princess" 2 stars
There is on overture of power in Russia in 1917. There is a hunt for loyalists and the royal family. They are wanted for execution. The princess' chambermaid has been trained to pose as the princess in times like these.
Anton, the Mennonite Merchant, is chosen to protect the princess. They marry. Then they fall in love and have a baby. The logical side of me wonders how they can risk having a baby when they are on the run. Did Anton marry the chambermaid or the princess? I will not spoil it for you.
The first 80 pages were difficult to wade through. There was too much dialogue and not enough movement. Though I am sure both authors are talented, there was more than one "voice" in this book. I think that is why it was so slow-moving.
This was not an enjoyable read. It was more like work than pleasure. It had potential, but it stalled.
Great read!  Jan 22, 2008
THE SOVEREIGN'S DAUGHTER is a richly textured love story set in war-torn Russia. The Mennonite, Anton, only meant to lead a quiet, unassuming life, but his character is tried and tested when he is entrusted to protect Tsar Nikolai's chambermaid. The conflicts and trials these characters endure touched my heart and kept me turning pages. And in my journey through this story, I learned so much about the Bolshevik revolution. The two authors, Susan May Warren and Susan K. Downs, both lived in Russia. Every scene is authentic and compelling. Highly recommended reading.
Poignant page-turner  Jan 1, 2008
The Sovereign's Daughter is a beautiful story, full of rich settings and deep characters. It drew me instantly, within the first two pages, into a world and a revolution I'd only studied previously as facts and figures. The setting became very real to me through these true-to-life characters and I could not put the book down. I was transported to an intriguing time and place I didn't want to leave. The book has many unexpected twists and turns, and is thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end. You'll find yourself cheering, laughing and then crying - tears of joy and of sadness. Excellent book.

uperb inspirational historical tale  Jan 1, 2008
In 1917 in Alexander Palace just south of Petrograd, Tsar Nikolai Romanov gives state secrets to his faithful twenty something chambermaid Oksana Terekhova. Though he trusts God will protect her, the Russian ruler assumes she has a better chance of survival than he and his royal family from overzealous revolutionaries especially the Bolsheviks, but still fears for her life. As such to keep Oksana and the secrets safe, he asks visiting Mennonite Anton Klassen to escort her to a safe haven; although dangerous the young Mennonite accepts the assignment that will bring honor to him and his family. Anton decides to hide Oksana inside his family on a South Russian farm.

As the Mennonite and the servant travel together, they begin to fall in love. However, dangerous adversaries seem to know that Oksana carries state secrets and make efforts to capture her so they can torture the information out of her. As the peril grows Anton begins to realize the state secrets he assumes his companion possesses is not what is the enemy wants; it is the woman that he vowed to his sovereign he will protect with his life who their adversaries vigorously pursue.

Using the Bolshevik Revolution as the impetus to this superb inspirational historical tale Susan May Warren and Susan K. Downs provide an interesting look at the turmoil of 1917 Russia. The key couple makes for a fascinating story as they flee for their lives heading from royalty to a Mennonite farm while revolutionaries pursue them. Each learns the hard way how difficult it truly is to trust God when you don't understand why bad things are happening to good people. Historical and inspirational fans will fully appreciate this fine saga and seek more collaborative works by the two Susans (see Heirs of Anton trilogy).
