25 CHAPTERS OF MY LIFE
"I imagine sitting beside someone with personal experience of a time you find fascinating, listening as they recount their memories. Not in hast, not guided or constrained by an interviewer's questions, but fully and at leisure, calling back the people and things that affected them most at the time, and so have stayed in the mind when other details are lost.
Read 25 Chapters of My Life and you come as close as any of us will ever come now to meeting someone born into the imperial Russian Court in its years of power, someone who knew that Court simply as home, and lived through its final years in hope and apprehension, without having an historical context into which to set their experience."

Moscow based publishing house "Russky Khronograf" has published second, expanded and amplified edition of Olga Chernova book "The faithful" (first edition published by publishing house "Satis" in 2007)
The new book continues the theme of spiritual feat and sacrificial love shown by Russian people belonging to very different social groups and estates (courtiers, teachers, servants, military men), who voluntarily shared with The Royal Martyrs Their tragic destiny.
Some of them were tortured to death by Bolsheviks and have recently been cononized. The others, endured arrest and the hardships of exile, continued serving Their memory to the end of the life.
This unique historic document, unpublished till now and unknown to the wide public, has been bought at the auction Sotheby's by the outstanding Russian musician Mstislav Rostropovitch who offered it for the publication to the publishing house "Vagrius". The diary documents the events of the most tragic years of the Russian history in the XXth century. The pictures of war, revolution, and emigration pass before reader's eyes, presented by not a simple participant and witness, but the historic figure whose role in the events is unvaluable.
EMPRESS MARIA FEODOROVNA'S FAVORITE RESIDENCES IN RUSSIA AND DENMARK.
When the Court jeweler Carl Faberge created his next masterpiece in 1890, the Easter egg, he drew on important events from Maria Feodorovna's life, and in doing so he presented her destiny in an unusually artistic way. In essence, the egg presents the story of her life in both Russia and Denmark.
The "surprise" hidden in this Faberge egg, which depicts Maria Feodorovna's favorite residences, could be thought of as a guide to this book. In tracing the progression of paintings on this delicate screen one, can examine the places that were especially dear to the Danish Princess who became a Russian Empress. There are the Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen, the summer residences at Bernstorf and Fredensborg, the small "Keizervilla" near Fredensborg, and Villa Hvidoere in Denmark. Her life in Russia is represented by the Anichkov Palace in Petersburg, Gatchina Palace, and the Cottage at Peterhof.
