This week we have three SIGNED copies to give away of The Last Days of the Romanov Dancers a stunning debut from a talented new Australian voice in historical fiction, Kerri Turner.

It’s 1910s Russia and we meet Valentina Yershova – whose position in the Romanovs’ Imperial Russian Ballet is the only thing keeping her from the clutches of poverty. With implacable determination, she has clawed her way through the ranks, relying not only on her talent but her alliances with influential men. Then Luka Zhirkov – the gifted son of a factory worker – joins the company, and suddenly everything she has built is put at risk.

For Luka, being accepted into the company fulfils a lifelong dream. But in the eyes of his proletariat father, it makes him a traitor. As civil war tightens its grip and the country starves, Luka is torn between his growing connection to Valentina and his guilt for their lavish way of life.

The Imperial Russian Ballet has become the ultimate symbol of Romanov indulgence, and soon the lovers are forced to choose: their country, their art or each other…
