The Tsarina's Daughter

Author: Carolly Erickson
Stars: 2
Review by: Kate

Novel set during the fall of Tsar Nicholas Romanov, as told by his second daughter Tatiana who "escaped" before the family was killed.

I was rather disappointed in this one. I didn't think the story flowed terribly well, and I don't think she did a very good job of weaving the historical context into the story --- it was a series of events that happened to this girl, without a setting. Disappointing.
