The Secret Wife

A Russian grand duchess and an English journalist Linked by one of the world’s greatest mysteriesLove Guilt Heartbreak1914 Russia is on the brink of collapse and the Romanov family faces a terrifyingly uncertain future Grand Duchess Tatiana has fallen in love with cavalry officer Dm. The Secret Wife was a nice enjoyable historical fictionromance Although it lacked the wow factor I found it to be a good story overall It was interesting and I enjoyed the details related to the time period However given the subject matter the book lacked the suspense that I would have expectedThe story alternates timeframes as well as locations In 2016 Kitty Fisher discovers that her husband is having an affair She has recently inherited a cabin in the United States from a great grandfather that she never knew existed Given the recent revelations about her marriage she packs her bags and leaves her home in London setting out for the cabin at Lake AkanabeeSoon after her arrival Kitty discovers some old writings in the cabin She becomes consumed with uncovering the story of her great grandfather Dmitri Malama The she unearths the apparent it becomes that Dmitri s life was anything but unremarkableThrough the writings a new look at Russia in 1914 and the downfall of the Romanov family is offered Unlike many other stories centered on the Romanov family which tend to speculate about Anastasia s fate this book focuses on Tatiana Romanov I found this part of the story to be fascinating and highly entertaining I lavished in every detail of this era in Russian historyDmitri was a cavalry officer who meets Tatiana when he is injured Tatiana volunteers at the hospital where he is sent for treatment The two fall in love only to be separated thereafter by the overthrow of the Russian Tsar and the subseuent restrictions placed on the Romanov familyEven after the reported murder of the Romanovs Dmitri holds out hope that Tatiana is alive Eventually he gives up hope He goes on to start a family of his own and relocates to America However things aren t always what they seem When fate thrusts Tatiana back into his life Dmitri is forced to make some very hard choices Can he reconcile his love for Tatiana with the new life that he has made for himself and the wife that has stuck by his side throughout the yearsAll things considered I expected this to be a much emotional read Instead it felt sweet and maybe even a little sad Even with Tatiana s reappearance the story failed to elicit the tremendous emotional highs and lows that I expected Things just fell together too perfectly Dmitri s wife was just too accepting and almost complacent I even felt the same way about how things worked out for Kitty and her husband It was like these characters had been given a heavy dose of a sedative Where was the anger and sense of betrayal Overall it ended up being a good but not great type of story for me It had a lot of unrealized potential I needed emotion and a stronger connection to the characters It felt kind of flat to me for lack of a better descriptorCheck out of my reviews at wwwbookaddicthavencom

CHARACTERS The Secret Wife

Itri but events take a catastrophic turn placing their romance and their lives in danger2016 Kitty Fisher escapes to her great grandfather’s remote cabin in America after a devastating revelation makes her flee London There on the shores of Lake Akanabee she discovers the spectacula. I had already decided that this was a book that I really wanted to read before I got an email about participating in a blog tour for the book I been interested in the Romanovs for years and reading a mystery book about Grand Duchess Tatiana was too tempting to resist I was especially thrilled about reading about Tatiana instead of Anastasia who otherwise seems to be the most popular sister to write aboutThe Secret Wife has two storylines One in the present time with Kitty leaving her husband in London settling in her great grandfather s remote cabin in America There she discovers that her grandfather was a writer and she finds a pendant that once belonged to a dog whose owner was a Russain Grand Duchess And in the past storyline we get to met her young grandfather when he wounded is taking care off by a very special nurseThis is a what if story What if Dmitri and Tatiana had really fallen in love and what if he had tried everything to save her life What would be the conseuences I looked up Tatiana and Dmitri on Wikipedia and was surprised to learn that Dmitri really had existed and that Tatiana had nursed him when he was wounded So even thou the book is fiction does it have some historical bearing I especially like that the story took some surprising turns that it turned out to be darker and sadder story than I had expected when I started to read the book The people in this book make rash decisions and some decisions will have ramifications years later This is a book where both storylines are good I liked reading about how Kitty discovered about her great grandfather life and thus learning about her family And Dmitri s storyline is just as intriguing

    This is a big fat preposterous WHAT IF But a good read neverthelessA mystery built around the Romanovs of Russia A fantasy built around one of the daughter's Tatiana's romances with a soldier And then it becomes a story within a story when Kitty Fischer one of the descendants inherits a remote cottage at a lake and tries to find out about her great grandfather Decide on the Romanoff connection as the axle and then add the rest

    Having loved Gill’s previous book No Place For a Lady I was very much looking forward to reading this and I wasn’t disappointed I’ve always had a fascination for the Russian Romanov family and it’s well documented in history how they met their fate What the author has done with The Secret Wife and so very well is to combine fiction with fact to make a spellbinding tale of love and lossI love dual narrative and timeslip
