really liked it
Read in June, 2010

Historical fiction set in Germany right before Hitler's reign, although it morphs into the takeover of the government by the Nazi Regime. It also deals with Russian history and the mystery of Anastasia. Ariana Franklin's novels usually deal with the time of Henry VIII - so there is a departure in the time frame. The mystery of how the different threads are connected are really well done and very enjoyable. I found the character of Anna Anderson becoming a pain after a while and just wanted her to stay in America instead of appearing in really random situations so that is why it should be 3.5 stars not 4 stars. I did like the development of Esther and her life/career.
