Summary
On the eve of her wedding in 1914 came the first rumours of an impending war-- a war that would change Countess Olga "Lala" Hendrikoff's life forever and force her to flee her country as a stateless person, with no country to call home. Spanning two of the most turbulent times in modern history-- World War I in Russia and World War II in Paris-- her journals demonstrate the uncertainty, horror and hope of daily life in the midst of turmoil
