HBL Note: Let’s just stop and take a moment to admire that beautiful book cover. That dress is stunning! I love everything about it from the delicate lace, to the ruffle on the dog collar, the pearl buttons down the back, the flouncy sleeves. Love love love. I am also enamored by the Romanov’s…aren’t we all? They have an incredible story that is rife with mystery. Did any of you watch The Romanoffs? It is a television show about people who believe they are decedents of the Russian royal family. It was a bizarre show but one I couldn’t stop watching! All of this to say, this book is going to be so interesting! Scroll down to read more…

From the publisher:

1918: Pretty, vivacious Grand Duchess Maria Romanov, the nineteen-year-old daughter of the fallen Tsar Nicholas II, lives with her family in suffocating isolation, a far cry from their once-glittering royal household. Her days are a combination of endless boredom and paralyzing fear; her only respite are clandestine flirtations with a few of the guards imprisoning the family—never realizing her innocent actions could mean the difference between life and death

1973: When Val Doyle hears her father’s end-of-life confession, “I didn’t want to kill her,” she’s stunned. So, she begins a search for the truth—about his words and her past. The clues she discovers are baffling—a jewel-encrusted box that won’t open and a camera with its film intact. What she finds out pulls Val into one of the world’s greatest mysteries—what truly happened to the Grand Duchess Maria?
