A new biography of the Russian Imperial Family...In 1913 the world was unaware that it was in the brink of a cataclysmic war, while in Russia Tsar Nicholas II was about to see his dynasty crumble and his family torn apart. Set in the years 1913 - 18, 'Road to Ekaterinburg' recounts the real story of Nicholas and Alexandra and their daughters - the Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia. Through peacetime, war, revolution and their eventual murders, this biography of the Russian Royal Family shows the true characters of the Romanov daughters, detailing their bravery and individual charm as human beings thrown into a situation where they had no power to fight against their own destiny. 'Road to Ekaterinburg' is the ultimate fight against tragedy and for freedom of expression. This is a story that has long needed to be told - simply the most comprehensive and accurate account of the tragic lives of the last crowned Tsar of Russia's four daughters: the Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Marie and Anastasia. Romanov Fans Will Discover: What was it like to be a Grand Duchess? Was it exciting or boring? The day-to-day details of the lives of the Grand Duchesses. Where they went and what they did. What did the Grand Duchesses wear? Their CLOTHES and hairstyles. The styles they preferred. THE GRAND DUCHESSES IN LOVE. Who were the young men involved? What did they look like? Details of the Grand Duchesses wartime NURSING experiences. How they managed and what they did. The Grand Duchesses hobbies, BOYFRIENDS and friends. The books they read, music they listened to, people they liked. How the Grand Duchesses bore up to imprisonment. Did their past experiences help them deal with it? Plus Ortipo's puppies and Anastasia's WORMS. A Personal Note From the Author: "Many years ago I read 'Nicholas and Alexandra' by Robert K Massey and wished there was a 'Nicholas and Alexandra's Daughters' book. I was so disappointed when I found there wasn't one - so I set about writing it myself! Over 30 years and many thousands of pages of notes later I was diagnosed with cancer, so decided to use my time productively by compiling everything into a book. My own illness meant I spent a lot of time surrounded by medical staff, and I learned a lot about Victorian and Edwardian medicine, and this really helped me to understand the various illnesses of the Tsarevich, the Tsarina and the four Grand Duchesses. I enjoyed writing my book and sharing my passion - I hope readers will share my own enjoyment of the book and its subject."
