This book is a collection of letters and journal entries written by the last tsar and tsarina of Russia. As the title suggests, Nicholas and Alexandra, unlike most royal couples, loved each other passionately throughout their lives. Their prolific writings tell the story of their struggles, not only in ruling Russia, but in raising their family, in particular their struggle with the heir's hemophiliac disease, which led eventually to the downfall of both the country and their family. The story ends tragically in their untimely death at the hands of the Communists during the Bolshevik Revolution.
