Has clouded our view of them leading to a mass of sentimental and idealized hagiography With this treasure trove of diaries and letters from the grand duchesses to their friends and family we learn that they were intelligent sensitive and perceptive witnesses to the dark turmoil within their immediate family and the ominous approach of the Russian Revolution the nightmare that would sweep their world away and them along with itThe Romanov Helen Rappaport paints a compelling portrait of Tatiana Olga Maria and Anastasia the four daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra in this well written account of the girls and their lives at courtI have read a great deal of books on the subject of Russia and the Romanov family and wasn t particularly sure what new information I would gain from this book But I was plesently surprised with the author s approach to the Novel and the research she had done Rappaport s skill at showing life within the Romanov family makes a genuinely new and interesting contribution to the Romanov story I found on reading this book that I gained a better insight into the girls lives and personalities and found that I came away with a better understanding of what life was like for these girls growing up and for the family on a wholeThe one thing that amazed me when reading this book was how unsuitable Nicholas and Alexandra were for the position in society that they found themselves in and I had great admiration for the family life that they tried to lead and how close as a family they really were The personality of Alexandra is extremely well analysed in this book and I think by doing so we getting a better understanding of events within the familyFor readers interested in the Romanov Family this is a great book extremely well written and researched I love the fact that the book contained photos and but I would love if the author had included a map with names of the places mentioned in the book

SUMMARY The Romanov Sisters The Lost Lives of the Daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra

The Romanov Sisters The Lost Lives of the Daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra

Sisters sets out to capture the joy as well as the insecurities and poignancy of those young lives against the backdrop of the dying days of late Imperial Russia World War I and the Russian Revolution Rappaort aims to present a new and challenging take on the story drawing extensively on previously unseen or unpublished letters diaries and archival sources as well as private collections It is a book that will surprise people even aficionad Having read all of Helen Rappaport s books including her 2009 Ekaterinburg the Last Days of the Romanovs I was delighted to read her latest work The Romanov Sisters concentrates on the story of the Romanov s from a slightly different viewpoint rather than highlighting the relationship of Nicholas and Alexandra or the illness of Alexey and Alexandra s reliance on Rasputin she takes the largely untold life stories of four sisters and examines them in detail Of course the marriage of Nicholas and Alexandra the birth of Alexey and Rasputin are all there but instead of the mere mention of four Grand Duchesses they become individuals possibly for the first time in printWhen Olga was born in 1895 Nicholas and Alexandra were besotted with their daughter After all Alexandra had given birth to a healthy and beautiful child and there was no reason to believe that the son needed as heir to the dynasty would not follow In 1897 with the birth of Tatiana Alexandra did ask what the nation would say to the birth of another daughter obviously realising that public opinion might shift against her if she failed to produce a son If she was concerned then the birth of two daughters Maria in 1899 and Anastasia in 1901 could only have caused her and Nicholas extreme concern However as a couple they adored and loved their daughters It is reasonable to say that had Nicholas been in almost any other situation four royal daughters would have been an asset However with Alexandra alienating the aristocracy by her non participation in society with relatives circling and seeing the possibility of nudging their own sons nearer the throne and with only a male heir able to succeed as Tsar the situation was a worrying one The birth of Alexey in 1904 should have solved all problems sadly as we know it caused new onesIt is fascinating to read that even before the first world war many members of the foreign press were nonplussed by the Russian reaction to the birth of the four Grand Duchesses with some objecting to the discrimination shown the girls One American journal thought four daughters enough to guarantee the security of the succession and their visit to England in 1909 was a triumph where the young girls enchanted press and crowds alike However in Russia the knowledge that Alexey had haemophilia led their parents to retreat in order to hide their secret and the world of the four girls began to shrink amidst widespread unrest As members of the aristocracy bemoaned their lack of contact with society and to blame Alexandra for keeping them almost prisoners in their palaces the healer and mystic Rasputin entered their lives Alexandra was wracked with guilt for giving her precious son the hereditary illness and retreating into solitude and ill health herself the girls often became carers to both their mother and brotherThis book gives all the girls their own personality and makes fascinating reading While both Nicholas and Alexandra tended to treat their girls as younger than their age we read of how they began to receive marriage proposals and to develop crushes on young officers that accompanied the family or on those soldiers they treated during the first world war By 1914 there were no desirable and marriageable royal princesses than Olga and Tatiana and it is apparent that both girls were young women by this time naive and unworldly but certainly struggling with crushes and feelings they were unable to ignore However the author also asks the interesting uestion of whether the girls were also deemed less of a desirable marriage prospect by the fear of haemophilia and the instability of Russia plus the isolation of the girls which made them often shy and uncomfortable in society Although Alexandra insisted her girls were too young and inexperienced to be allowed into the St Petersburg society she objected to she allowed them often inappropriate contact with officers in the gilded cage she confined them in and against which they obviously longed to leave although they rarely voiced that wish as they were generally obedient and loving daughtersThis book follows their life from the glittering palaces of Imperial Russia through rare but much loved trips abroad and on to the war and revolution We learn of how the girls nursed the injured how they studied and how they forlornly hung on to every word about life outside of the one they lived in Helen Rappaport really makes this time come alive and this is a book to immerse yourself in and which should you have any interest in this period of history which you will enjoy immensely Wonderfully written sympathetic but honest this is a welcome appraisal of the life of the four daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra often sidelined by history but now shown as the individuals they were and the tragedies they faced with dignity and fortitude This is another success from an author that I admire greatly and whose books are always a pleasure to read and re readI received a copy of this book from the publishers for review uinze dias know it caused new onesIt is fascinating to read that even before the first

They were the Princess Dianas of their day perhaps the most photographed and talked about young royals of the early twentieth century The four captivating Russian Grand Duchesses Olga Tatiana Maria and Anastasia Romanov were much admired for their happy dispositions their looks the clothes they wore and their privileged lifestyleOver the years the story of the four Romanov sisters and their tragic end in a basement at Ekaterinburg in 1918 Well that was damn tragic and beyond sad
