Alexandra Andreevna Voronine Yourieff, wife of Vidkun Quisling, reveals firsthand in this detailed memoir the tragedy, betrayals, misunderstandings, and happiness of her fascinating life. Not just a tale of saints and sinners, but of three people—Alexandra, Quisling, and his second wife, Maria—whose fates were intertwined under the extreme conditions created by revolution, war, and famine in Russia. She discloses every particular of her long and tumultuous life, from her happy early childhood on the Crimean peninsula thorough the horrors of the revolution, her marriage to Quisling and his ultimate betrayals of both her and his country, to her later life in France and California.
