Children's Literature - Melissa Stickles
Born on June 18, 1901, The Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov became the fourth daughter of the Russian Tsar Nicholas II. Her father's family was important in Russia—they had ruled the Russian people for 300 years. Anastasia led a quiet life surrounded by her loving family and her four sisters. She did not know what life was like for the Russian people outside of the palace walls. When Russia went to war in 1914, her father was called to lead the Russian army. Anastasia missed her father. To help the war effort, she and her sisters would visit wounded soldiers at the hospitals—where one grateful soldier gave her brother Alexei a spaniel puppy that he named Joy. In 1917, the war turned for the worse. The Russian people were starving, millions of soldiers were injured or killed, and this soon erupted into a revolution. As a new temporary government took over Russia's capital, her father was forced to resign. She and her family moved to a house in Tobolsk, Siberia, where they tried to live a normal life. In the spring of 1918, they were forcibly relocated to central Russia by the new Bolshevik government where they could hear the sounds of war in the distance. Anastasia and her family didn't know it, but it was the White Army coming to rescue them! Unfortunately, the White Army would not get there in time. At midnight of July 17, 1918, the family was sentenced to death by the Bolshevik government. When the White Army finally reached the house to rescue the royal family, all they found was Alexei's spaniel, Joy. Reviewer: Melissa Stickles
