Format: Paperback
I received this for my birthday after lots of pleading. As a history lover, I didn't know much about the Russian family, my little knowledge spanning from the incorrect 1997 Anastasia film. So when I read this, I was delighted to be immediatley sucked into the privileged life of the Tsar's youngest daughter. Anastasia appealled to me as a girl with big dreams and a big heart, idolizing her Papa, the Tsar, arguing with her sisters and caring and playing with her sickly little brother. I was afraid for her during the First World War, I laughed with her during the one brilliant summer,I sighed at her irritable mother and ultimately became, in my head, a Grand Duchess. This novel is a truthful amazing insight to how the famed Anastasia saw the world as it undergoed war and revolution, only to end on one tragic night with the sound of a gunshot. What happened to such compelling characters disgusts me, after all, they were completely innocent!I have reread this novel almost seven times and each time I find myself annoyed with the Empress, smitten with the Tsar, insulted by Olga and Tatiana, joyful by Maria and happy by Alexei, as if I was Anastasia. If you want an interesting, heartfelt read, then pick this up and let yourself sink into the unravelling plotline that is a four year account of a life of a Romanov, who might of died innocently age seventeen with her helpless family, but still continues to live in memory and mystery!

Format: Paperback
Anastasia's story is one that ends tragically and this book shows the very privileged and sheltered life she led in the various palaces owned by the Romanovs in Russia in the last century. Her family possessed fabulous wealth which contrasted greatly with the poverty of the majority of her father's subjects. However although set against a political background this is the story of a family, of four sisters and a brother with a life threatening illness and how they lived day to day in a country both at peace and at war and the impact the changing times had on them. It helps make shadowy historical figures become real people and I recommend it!

Very good book, not much hard words- easy, quick and interesting to read. Learn about a chapter in history of Russia, but the books 'Anastasia' are quite expensive. :-)
