John Boyne has written a magical love story; full of danger, courage, promise and unwavering devotion. The story of the Romanov family and their fate is well known but in this novel the author gives us a look into an alternate realm where all does not end as history would have us believe. I came upon this book by chance in B&N and am so glad that I did. If you are an enthusiast of historical fiction this book will not disappoint! Happy reading

Really good. It kept me guessing & I liked the way the author set out the time line, unique.

Oh no. Not another "Anastasia didn't get killed" book. And it was obvious where this was going early on. There are so many well researched and well written books on the Romanovs, why do we need yet another alternate history of the fate of the youngest daughter? It's not very interesting, nor especially well written. Georgy speaks such refined language even as a young boy for a peasant son of a farmer who wasn't schooled, for one example. I can't recommend this book.
