Olga, Tatiana, Mari, and Anastasia: The four daughters of Czar Nicholas II and his wife Alexandra all died with their parents and their younger brother in July 1918, shot and stabbed by Bolshevik assassins. The oldest was only 22; the youngest, just 17; but even their brief lives and untimely deaths had made them legendary; so mythic in fact, that later more than a dozen women claimed that they were Romanov daughters who had somehow miraculously escaped execution. In this revelatory book, biographer Helen Rappaport uses letters, diaries, interviews, and other documents to uncover the real stories of these strangely fated young royals. Editor's recommendation.
