Anastasia is truly a carefree young duchess, daughter of Nicholas Alexandrovitch Romanov, tsar of every single utilizing the Russias in 1914. Anastasia begins to understand that all is not properly inside the outside world, either. Anastasia's younger brother, the future tsar, is truly a hemophiliac--a"bleeder"who cannot stop bleeding if he is cut or bruised. Anastasia's world gradually deteriorates, as reported in her youthful, often playful journal. Slowly a hint of future trouble enters her happy, pampered life. While her father attends to the turbulent affairs of a vast and complicated country, Anastasia's significant concerns are the way to get out of her detested schoolwork to play inside the snow, go ice skating, or have picnics. She wears diamonds and rubies, and every morning her mother tells her which matching outfit she and her 3 sisters shall wear that day. Not everyone in Russia worships her father as she does, and the Germans are about to declare war on Russia.

As Russia entered World War I, hunger and poverty grew amongst the peasants, and the Romanov ruling family members began to lose favor, culminating in their murders--including Anastasia's--by Bolshevik revolutionaries. This fictionalized diary of the mischievous youngest daughter's final four years provides a fascinating glimpse into a life of unlimited wealth--and the subsequent downward spiral. (Ages 9 to 14) --Emilie Coulter Historical notes, family trees, and photographs round out Carolyn Meyer's compelling contribution for the popular Royal Diaries series.
