Family is all

The Lost Crown

Title: The Lost Crown
By: Sarah Miller

The Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia Romanov are the daughters of Nicholas II, the last Tsar of Russia. The girl’s lives are immersed in privilege until the onset of World War I, when the war effort quickly turns to revolution across Russia. The Bolshevik party has risen quickly, and most of the Russian people support the Bolsheviks’ belief that the Tsarist government needs to be done away with. Soon, Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia, their parents, brother, and most loyal servants are prisoners in their own palace. Every move they make is now watched. It seems that everyone has turned against Tsar Nicholas II, blaming him for all of their troubles. Eventually, the family is moved to a small house in Ekaterinburg, a village in Siberia. The girls soon begin to wonder what will happen to them, wondering if they’ll be freed, or if there’s a worse fate waiting for them than they ever imagined.

The Lost Crown is a story about how in the most terrible of situations, all you can count on is your family being there for you; even being royalty isn’t all it seems to be at first glance.
