There is fear on Varavara's face. Her eyes dart sideways. Her left cheek twitches. She shakes her head, claps her hand over her mouth. "Shh," she whispers."It's just your pain speaking. It's not you. Shh."

  1. Is this book historical fiction about Catherine the Great of Russia? I always want to learn something when I read a book, or at least a little.

  6. This one interests me. I want to know what was said to make Varavara freak out a bit. Since I kind of like historical fiction I might have to check this one out.
    Thanks for sharing!

  15. This does sound interesting. I haven't read anything by this author, although I have seen her name all over Facebook! I'll have to try one of her books!

  18. I am intrigued - and have now put the first in this series on my reading list. My 5-year-old recently discovered the cartoon version of Anastasia so we've been, very basically, talking about "real" princesses and using the movie as an example. So I can argue this is research to support my daughter's interest, right?

  19. WOW what a list of books! I keep wanting to join up because I've seen several posts go by and it looks like such a great way to see what others are reading.

    ReplyDelete
  20. That's a good opening!

    ReplyDelete
  21. What a great teaser! Now I want to know what she said and why she's so afraid!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love historical fiction for travel. It's my favourite genre for that purpose. I'm not even sure why as the rest of the time I read other types of fiction.

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In. Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).

REVIEW: So much better than I anticipated. One fierce, strong and smart mom comes to the rescue of her whole family. These guys who took her kids, don't stand a chance. She's not a MMA fighter or anything, but she is smart and resourceful. I was so in tune with the film, and as a mom, I was on the edge-of-my-set waiting for her to give them what they deserved. No one should take a womans' kids.  Men and women will both love this movie, so  maybe a date nigh…
