Hi everyone!  Has anyone read the above book, "Elizabeth Grand Duchess of Russia" by Hugo Mager?  I was wondering what were your thoughts, and if it's worth reading.  Last week I read, "Grand Duchess Elizabeth of Russia" by Lubov Millar and found this a very portrayal of St Elizabeth.  Actually, this book was recommended to me by a friend who said it was the best one out there.  So, should I bother with reading the book by Hugo Mager ... or is it more of a worldly portrayal of the Duchess, rather than from a Christian perspective?

Thanks!

I haven't read it yet QuoVadis but I am very interested in the Grand Duchess. I find her story just a wonderful example of total dedication to Christ and despite horrors we pray we'll never see, her faith never wavered.
