The Romanov Sisters: The Lost Lives of the Daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra (2014)
3.82 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: It was very interesting, but so much information about the last Romanovs was destroyed, some by them at the end (Alexandra burned a lot of diaries and letters so that they couldn't be used as evidence against her in the trial she thought was coming), and the family kept so much t...

review 1: After finishing The Romanov Sisters, The Last Days of the Romanovs seemed a logical choice for my next read. It picks up virtually where The Romanov Sisters left off. The book is told in a countdown form, with each chapter representing one day. It describes the background of e...
