1918. With the country they once ruled turned against them, the future of the Romanov family hangs in the balance. When middle daughter Maria captures the attention of two of the guards, it will lead to the ultimate choice between right and wrong....

Val rushes to her father's side when she hears of his troubling end-of-life confession: 'I didn't want to kill her'. As she unravels the secrets behind her mother's disappearance when she was 12 years old, she finds herself caught up in one of the world's greatest mysteries.

Just wow!

Stop what you are doing and read this. I love all of Gill Paul's books. I finished this one in 3 days, listening to the audiobook as I went about my days. Riviting, haunting, beautiful and heartfelt. Paul makes the characters come alive and humanizes their stories, while sticking closely to the facts. She keeps the memory of this perhaps very misunderstood family alive. Bravo.
