Book Review: The Youngest Lady in Waiting by Mara Kay

star rating  5 stars, 1 review

Author: Mara Kay
Publisher: John Day Co.

 Loved It

I'm a 43 year old straight man and I love this book, and its predecessor, Masha. In this book, I like the way Masha develops from the insecure girl in the first book, and the descriptions of St Petersburg, the Winter Palace and the Decembrist rebellion are rich and vivid. I also felt very affected by the fun-loving, fashion-loving Sophie abandoning everything to accompany the man she loves to exile in Siberia.

I borrowed this book off my sister when I was 12, and I recently tracked down a copy. It is the most expensive book I've ever bought ($370), but it has the same effect on me that it did when I was a child. I also have managed to buy two copies of Masha (one for me, one for my sister, who was overjoyed). However, TYLIW is rarer than hens' teeth!
