Unforgettable Romantic Tragedy

by Lois B H on Aug 3, 2011

This book is unforgettable. The authors managed to distill thousands of letters and journal entries into 600+ very touching and informative pages. It reads like a great novel, due to the inclusion of letters and excerpts from memoirs of others involved in their tragic lives.

A Must Read

by Dane on May 28, 2009

A musst read for Romanov scholars, and those simply interested in the last rulers of Imperial Russia. Source documents - letters, diaries, police reports, telegrams, et al - give a nuanced understanding of the period, and those that were caught up in the dramatic swirl and devestation, wreaked by the the Russian Revolution. Most poignant is the letter the future Tsar Nicholas writes to Alix of Hesse, after her initial refusal to change her religion to become his wife: he asks her what type of life he could possibly have without her. The depth of love, that this ill-fated couple held for each other is a true testament to the joy of married love. This is something worth relfecting in the 21st century, where marital vows are as easily discarded as yesterday's cell phone.
