The Lost Crown by Sarah Miller

Mixed Media

The lives of the daughters of Tsar Nicholas II are turned upside down when the Bolshevik Revolution sweeps away imperial Russia. Alternating between the voices of the four grand duchesses, this young adult historical novel, based on impeccable research, portrays the reality of a loving family living in a dangerous time. Particularly moving are their expressions of faith in God and their growing realization that the disparity between their pampered lives and the lives of the disillusioned masses contributed to the social upheaval that uprooted them.
