The Tsar’s Daughter

by Catherine Estes

In the wake of her mother’s death, Irina discovers a letter written by her deceased Grandmother, Sonya Jobert, to her daughters. In the letter, Sonya Jobert claims to be the long lost Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov, who survived the slaughter of the Imperial Family in July 1918. Shaken and confused, Irina attempts to unearth the truth about her grandmother. Was she the last Grand Duchess or the daughter of Russian merchants as she claimed in life? Why did her grandmother wait until her death to reveal her secret? As Irina struggles to find the truth, she encounters allies in some family members and enemies in others. But as events unfold, Irina realizes that she is putting her reputation and life on the line by pursuing her deceased Grandmother’s claim for what may or may not be the truth.
