Lost Roses is a prequel to the wonderful Lilac Girls. Both are historical fiction novels by Martha Hall Kelly. Lost Roses centers on three very different women during the Russian Revolution and the First World War. These women are from different countries and have vastly different backgrounds but their lives become intertwined. You see excess wealth and devastating poverty. You travel the globe from the United State to Russia to Europe. I felt like a time traveler witnessing this time from three very different perspectives. I think you will enjoy the travels as much as I did. Then if you have not read Lilac Girls, I suggest you read it to see how someone from the next generation experiences the next World War.
I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy from netgalley. It did not influence my review since I already loved this author and Lilac Girls.
