Not quite four stars. The book is told from Tatiana, Olga, Maria and Anastasia's POV, sounds lovely no? It wasn't, it's hard to keep track of who is who (also going back and fort to the beginning of the chapter on my nook is not easy for my clumsy fingers), truly the only one that really reads differently is Anastasia's because her POV reads ~younger~ Multiple POVs are always tricky, and it does come in handy near the second half of the book.

Anyhow, it's a great story and the author seems to have done a lot of research. I was thoroughly depressed at end and made me want to read more Romanov lit. Loved that there's a photograph of the Grand Duchesses before each chapter, I would truly suggest getting a hard copy of this book just because of the photographs in it.
