I'm seeking a proofer for a book called Sashenka. Here is the synopsis:

Winter, 1916: In St Petersburg, Russia on the brink of revolution. Outside the 
Smolny Institute for Noble Young Ladies, an English governess is waiting for 
her young charge to be released from school. But so are the Tsar's secret 

Beautiful and headstrong, Sashenka Zeitlin is just sixteen. As her mother 
parties with Rasputin and her dissolute friends, Sashenka slips into the frozen 
night to play her part in a dangerous game of conspiracy and seduction. 

Twenty years on, Sashenka has a powerful husband with whom she has two 
children. Around her people are disappearing, but her own family is safe. But 
she's about to embark on a forbidden love affair which will have devastating 

Sashenka's story lies hidden for half a century, until a young historian goes 
deep into Stalin's private archives and uncovers a heart-breaking tale of 
passion and betrayal, savage cruelty and unexpected heroism - and one woman 
forced to make an unbearable choice.

If you're interested, please let me know by emailing:
