The Tsarina's Daughter By Carolly Erickson

Tiana tells her story in the form of a manuscript that is found among her papers after her death in 1989. She escaped the massacre of 1918 with her beau but never forgot what happened to her family. The Tsar and Tsarina are portrayed in the book as some what weak and befuddled which I doubt was really case. Rasputin has a small and brief appearance in the story. Tiana quickly learns not to trust him and is thrilled when he is quietly "taken care of" .
It was a really entertaining story to read if you don't mind liberties taken with the Romanov family's story.If you enjoyed Danielle Steel's Zoya you will probably enjoy this book as well
