I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received an advance reader’s copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I Was Anastasia shattered my heart into a million pieces like a well-written book should. Previously, I was not familiar with the story of Anastasia Romanov. The author takes one on a journey through the lives of Anastasia, a Russian tsarevna, and Anna Anderson, a woman who in the present, claims to be Anastasia. This is controversial in that Anastasia was assumed to have been killed, along with her family, by a firing squad years ago. The author captivated me by her personalization of the characters, including Anastasia’s beloved dog, Jimmy, who also stole my heart.
