In her striking new novel, The Lost Season of Love and Snow, Jennifer Laam helps bring Natalya's side of the story to life with vivid imagination--the compelling tale of her inner struggle to create a fulfilling life despite the dangerous intrigues of a glamorous imperial Court and that of her greatest love.
