From the New York Times bestselling author of The Winter Sea and The Vanished Days When a woman brings a small wooden carving into the art dealership, claiming it once belonged to Russia's Empress Catherine, Nicola Marter's boss believes it is worthless. There is no proof to her claim. But Nicola has a rare gift and as she holds "The Firebird", she knows that the woman is telling the truth.
Compelled to uncover its true history, she turns to the only person she knows can help her: a man she thought she'd never see again but who can access the past in a way no one else can. Following history from Scotland, to Belgium and to St Petersburg, The Firebird is a sweeping story of love, sacrifice, courage and redemption, a journey that spans centuries and will change their lives forever.
