Ages 12 and up. Elena lives in the impoverished Russian countryside. Her mother is dying, slowly, in their tiny cabin. And there is no food. Then a train arrives in the village, carrying untold wealth, a cornucopia of food, and a noble family destined to visit the Tsar - including Ekaterina, a girl of Elena's age. When the two girls' lives collide, an adventure is set in motion that includes mistaken identity, a monk locked in a tower, a prince traveling incognito, and Baba Yaga, witch of Russian folklore, in her ambulatory house perched on chicken legs.
