This is the second book about the Romanov family I have read in the last month. I enjoyed this book. It starts when Anastasia is 13. It describes what happened to the family when she was younger, and then imprisoned and ultimately murdered. The author weaved a love story into for Anastasia, which I thought was sweet, there probably was someone that she cared about. What 13 year-old girl doesn't have a crush on somebody?? I was kind of amazed at the things that happened to this family. They were basically imprisoned in their own home with all of their comforts, running water, warm water at one point, electricity, and even leaving the house taken away from them by soldiers and people that would have them killed. So sad, Anastasia was only 17 years old when her family was killed.
