    "If you are interested in Russian history, but also enjoy Historical Fiction, this is a good option to read. This book is about one of the families in Russia and follows them through the Russian Revolution. These types have stories have always been an interesting way for me to learn other parts of history I was not knowledgeable about before, while also reading an interesting story. "

    "There follows a 4 page listing, with one or two line descriptions, of every historical personage mentioned in the "diary" -- including "Jim", one of two American black men, who had jobs as door-keepers of the Czar! The life of the author, Carolyn Meyer, is described on the next two pages. Acknowledgements for the cover painting, (a truly regal, yet tellingly personal portrait of Anastasia), by Tim O'Brien, and for the sources of the photographs, previously mentioned, follows. A page listing the other books in the Royal Diaries series, (only 5, when my copy was printed....but now, happily added to!), follows, and on the last page, copyright, abd deducatu("For Patricia Clark Smith"), information is given -- along with the caveat: "While Royal Diaries are based on real royal figures, and actual historical events, some situations and people in this book are fictional, created by the author." Happily, also -- as in the best old books -- a description of the typefaces used is also given: 'Longfellow' for display type, and 'Augereau' for the text. (('Fontaholics', such as myself, truly appreciate this information being given!)) The book has beautiful, patterned endpapers, and what must be a gold-foil simulation of the real gold, used on many diaries in the past...and even a few, right now. The binding is VERY good -- and is the very best I have ever seen, outside of really old and/or expensive books, which are sewn by hand in signatures, which costs of producing this book at its modest price, obviously prohibited. But -- a very, very good binding, nonetheless! I suspect that the "Royal Diary" series was inspired by both the Walt Disney "The Princess Diary" movie series, (and the books that inspired them), and, perhaps, also "The Diary of Anne Frank". A diary is always intriguing, after all, no matter who has written it. And a diary written by a Royal personage, perhaps even more so. Anyone who can learn a great deal by finishing this easily read, omtriguing, totally involving book. On the "FrozenTears.com" website, which is devoted to the Romanovs and their senseless killing, one lady -- obviously a cousin to the murdered Romanovs -- has written, simply and eloquently: "I wish I had known my family". In this book, we come not just to know the Grand Duchess Anastasia Nicholaievna Romanov -- but every person with whom she came into contact, during her brief life. How sad that we can know the Romanovs, now, only though books, photographs, and a few historic films. As I have commented on YouTube, "If, someday, someone invents a Time-Machine, please go back to 1900 and warn the Romanovs!" In the meantime, we are fortunate to have the photographs, the historic film clips -- and books such as this one, which bring the last Imperial Russian Family, (last, that is, as of this writing!), vividly, realistically, and poignantly, to life!"

    "This is a fun little book about the Romanov family - a fiction for young and old alike. I enjoy the great settings that the author weaves together and the imagery is great. It's a smaller book and easy to read so it will be fun for a book club too. I would recommend for anyone interested in the Romanov dynasty."

    "This is a book that could not figure out whether it was historical fiction or a cheesy romance novel. It is very inaccurate in many ways when compared to real Russian history. Totally unforgivable given that available amount of resources and information from back then. Major disappointment."
