Martha Hall Kelly's Lost Roses is a historical novel that takes us back to World War I, focusing readers' attention on the changes that are taking place in Russia. The American Eliza Ferriday separates with her close friend Sofia Streshnayva, a cousin of the royal family, without knowing that she will not receive any news from her in the next few years.
While Eliza is looking for a way to contact Sofya, she chooses to help women and children from Russia who have immigrated to the United States. Meanwhile, Sofya is experiencing the horrors and consequences of the Russian Revolution - separated from its own child, she must find a way to survive, but also to bring it back. Varinka hides the little boy who she had to take care of with the idea of protecting him from the Bolsheviks, but loves him so much that she refuses to return him. The paths of the three heroines intersect again - from Petersburg and New York they reach Paris, where the fate of each of them must be decided.
