The Secret Daughter of the Tsar
Lena was a loyal servant to the tsarina Alexandra. But with all the political intrigue going on at court, it’s hard to know what is right or wrong. Charlotte just wants to get her son safely out of German-occupied Paris—especially once a Nazi soldier who seems to know every detail of her life comes looking for her. And then there’s Veronica. She’s just trying to keep her career afloat when a meddling cousin introduces her to Michael—a tall, dark, and handsome man who shares her obsession for Russian history. He seems to have been made to order just for Veronica, but can she trust that image of perfection?
Three women in three very different times are linked to one idea—that in August 1902, Alexandra did not have a miscarriage or hysterical pregnancy as history records, but actually had a fifth daughter who was hidden away. The three stories combine effortlessly, and while the results are somewhat predictable, it does bring a fresh approach to an old idea…now that science has disproved any possibility of Anastasia’s escape. I’m no expert to judge the accuracy of the history, but it was an enjoyable and intriguing read.
