This is the story of an adventuress, Nell Tritton, Brisbane department store heiress, who married former Russian Prime Minister Alexander Kerensky. Stalin and Hitler had Kerensky on their hit list, so evading would be assassins makes this story a heart-stopping slice of history. Churchill sent a warship to a French port to save Kerensky. The American government financed their passage to New York, where as a celebrity couple they were treated like royalty but soon learned her days were numbered. . She and Kerensky returned to Elderslie, her parents' Brisbane colonial home. Stalin's other main enemy, Leon Trotsky had just been assassinated. Kerensky feared Stalin's gunmen would find them and patrolled the verandas of the Tritton's home, revolver in hand as Nell lay dying. She was buried beside her siblings in Duttton Park cemetery and her story forgotten until Susanna was shown her Paris diaries
