Readers Union, 1972. 

'Elizaveta Fen's father was a provincial governor in Bielorussia. The family lived in the Russian equivalent of Edwardian comfort. Fen shares her story of her days in a boarding school and her aspirations to be a writer and to fall in love--properly in love, not into an adolescent infatuation. She concludes with the day she set forth to meet "real life" at a university in St. Petersburg, in 1917.'
