of

An experienced biographer of British and Russian royals, Helen Rappaport has presented us with the short, happy lives of the daughters of Russian Tsar Nicholas II – four sheltered, privileged, earnest girls who never harmed a fly. Rappaport brings out each one’s character and does it neatly, with a fine touch. You can see the Monitor's review of "The Romanov Sisters" here.
