The million-copy bestseller “Lilac Girls” introduced the real-life heroine Caroline Ferriday. Now “Lost Roses,” set a generation earlier and also inspired by true events, features Caroline’s mother, Eliza, and follows three equally indomitable women from St. Petersburg to Paris under the shadow of World War I. It is 1914, and Eliza is thrilled to be traveling to St. Petersburg with Sofya Streshnayva, a cousin of the Romanovs. But when Russia’s imperial dynasty begins to fall, Eliza escapes back to America, while Sofya and her family flee to their country estate. “Lost Roses” celebrates the unbreakable bonds of women’s friendship, especially during the darkest days of history.
