Angel on the Square is set in Russia just before and during World War I and the Bolshevik Revolution. It’s told from the point of view of an aristocratic young girl, Katya. Her mother is selected to be a lady-in-waiting for the Empress and, since Katya is about the same age as Anastasia, she goes with her to be a friend and playmate for the princess. I had a bit of a hard time getting into the story, but once I got about 2/3 of the way through it I could hardly put it down. I highly recommend this book to kids who are learning about the Romanovs or the end of Imperial Russia.
