Description: When a train stalls in an impoverished village in czarist Russia, two girls’, country girl Elena and aristocratic Ekatrina, meet and their lives collide. In this dazzling novel for all ages, master storyteller Gregory Maguire interweaves a tale of mistaken identities with a priceless Fabergé egg, a crotchety aunt, a monk locked in a tower, a prince traveling incognito, matryoshka dolls, dragon’s teeth, and a wise-cracking Baba Yaga, a witch of Russian Folklore.
