'Wonderful . . . hugely ambitious and atmospheric' Kate Mosse

Discover a brilliant story of love, danger, courage and betrayal, from the internationally bestselling author of The Betrayal.
*****

Junchow, China, 1928.
Lydia Ivanova was among the Russian elite until the Bolsheviks revolutions forced her to flee to China with her mother. But survival is hard.

Lydia has a fierce spirit. Nothing can dim it, not even the foul waters of the Peiho River. Into the river's grime bodies are tossed - those of thieves and Communists alike. A reminder that every time Lydia steals from someone to feed herself and her mother, she takes her life into her own hands.

Even though mother and daughter live in the Whites-only settlement, no walls can keep Lydia in as she escapes to meet her lover, Chang An Lo. But Chang has enemies who are hunting him down, and their all-consuming love can only mean danger for them both . . .

The Concubine's Secret and The Jewel of St Petersburg are also available to buy NOW in paperback and ebook.

Un-put-down-able, from beginning to end.
Some really heartfelt beautiful tender moments to hand-to-mouth terror of gripping fear. Absolutely brilliant. Best read since Kate Furnivall’s The Russian Concubine

“The Russian Concubine”

The book travelled through a tale of love, relating to Romeo and Juliet. The turns it took never escaped my surprise.I would recommend this book to anyone.
