Book Review: The Romanov Sisters: The Lost Lives of the Daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra by Helen Rappaport

Rapparport is an amazing writer and did a great deal of research on these girls. She really brings to life the stories of these young women. These young women lost their lives way too soon. This book covers not just the girls but the entirety of their background. This book is highly detailed and put together quite nicely to give an accurate depiction of what these girls really went through in their lives.

Rapparport writes this story in a way that you can feel all the emotion that the people went through during this time. When Alexandra Feodorovna has her baby girls you could feel the disappointment of the people around that these healthy baby girls weren't baby boys. This book really digs into the past of this family and shares many details with the readers. As a reader, I felt like I could really look at this family as being real people and not just history figures that I read about in my school history book.

I think this book is very well written and I loved all the pictures that were included in the book. I feel like the readers is able to get into more of the girl's lives. There were many details that haven't been in other books and I was able to tell that their was a lot of research put into this book. I definitely think if you like biographies or anything related to the Romanov family then this would be a great read.
