Book recommendations

Post  Guest on Thu Jan 22, 2015 1:49 pm

I have recently become fascinated with Tsar Nicholas II and his family.  Can anyone recommend some good books about them?  I found a few at my local library, A Lifelong Passion by Maylunas and Mironenko and The Family Romanov by Candace Fleming.  Amazon has so many books about them that I'd like some recommendations so I know where to begin Smile

The Diary of Olga Romanov edited Helen Azar: English language translation of the young Grand Duchess's diary during WWI. Excerpts of writings from family and those familiar with the Russian court. It's worth a read!

The Romanov Sisters by Helen Rappaport: I haven't read this one, however, it's been well-reviewed. It's a collective biography of Nicholas and Alexandra's daughters.

There is one called Nicky and Alix by Virginia Rounding which I found exceptionally good. The Romanov Sisters is a phenomenal book as well.
