Description from author's website:
"The youngest grand duchess in the Russian imperial family comes of age during the revolution. Her family is imprisoned, conditions become worse and worse. But Anastasia has a secret that she keeps from her family, a love that endures through the horrors of war and the privation of imprisonment and deprivation.Will her love save her from the fate her family seems destined for? Or is she a creation of a rarefied atmosphere, unable to survive without her loved ones?"
I have been fascinated with the story of Anastasia since I was a teen studying about the Russian Revolution in history class. I remember the picture in my history textbook of young Anastasia with her siblings and parents and how sad I felt when I found out their fate. Needless to say I am excited about this new novel by Susanne Dunlap. I loved The Musician's Daughter, her other YA novel so I have high hopes for Anastasia's Secret. I am not sure what angle the author will take with the story but I am sure that I will like it. Find out more about Anastasia at Anastasia Lives, a blog created by Susanne Dunlap.
