Book Review: I Was Anastasia

I Was Anastasia

A Novel

by Ariel Lawhon

Doubleday Books


General Fiction (Adult) , Historical Fiction

Pub Date 27 Mar 2018

I am reviewing a copy of I Was Anastasia through Doubleday and Netgalley:

What happened to the Romanov family in that basement when Vladimir from the Bolshevik Secret Police ordered them into that basement in Siberia on July.17.1918 to face a firing squad? Did the entire imperial family die at the hands of a firing squad? As the executioners claimed or could one have lived?

On February.17.1920 in a canal in Germany a young woman is pulled out saved from drowning out of a Canal inn Berlin. The woman they pull out shivering and senseless bares an uncanny resemblance to Anastasia Romanov. An examination reveals horrific scars all over her body and when she finally does speak she claims to be The Russian Grand Duchess Anastasia?

Could Anastasia escaped the firing squad?

Many believe she is only after the Romanov fortune but for the woman who claims to be Anastasia the reality could put her in the face of danger, her very life threatened once more.

Could the woman some call Anna Anderson really be Anastasia Romanov?

Anna is often placed in mental hospitals while others claim she is insane.

I give I Was Anastasia five out of five stars!

Happy Reading
