This story describes the dramatic lives of Prince Dmitri Korolev and his family caught up in the upheavals of European revolution and war. They flee Russia in 1919, escape to Switzerland and then Paris, but, with the Second World War, they come under further pressure from the Communist police. The author worked for many years in Paris as a foreign correspondent and wrote several novels including "Tanamera", "A Farewell to France", "A Woman of Cairo" and "The Other Side of Paradise".

'An astonishing fictional debut ... A great read' -- Daily Mail on TANAMERA 'An exceedingly good book, and one of the can't put down variety ... a winner' M M Kaye, author of The Far Pavilions -- M M Kaye, author of The Far Pavilions on TANAMERA 'Noel Barber has always done everything in a big way, with style, panache and a dash of adventure. But he has never written a story of such dimensions, such a sense of history and imagination as this first novel ... it is an intensely gripping and convincing story' -- Manchester Evening News on TANAMERA 'Barber is a master' -- Mail on Sunday

About the Author:

Noel Barber was a British novelist and journalist. Many of his novels, considered exotic romances, as well as his works of 20th century history, are based on his first-hand experiences as leading foreign correspondent for the Daily Mail.

Most notably he reported from Morocco, where he was stabbed five times. In October 1956, Barber survived a gun shot wound to the head by a Soviet sentry in Hungary during the Hungarian revolution.

Noel Barber has enchanted millions of readers with his six bestselling novels. In these powerfully exotic novels he drew upon his own experience as one of the leading foreign correspondents from the 40s to the 60s working on the Daily Mail. He was the first Briton to reach the South Pole since Scott, was stabbed five times while covering the wars in Morocco and was shot during the Hungarian uprising. He died in 1988.
