DescriptionThe story of the love that ended an empire In this commanding book, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robert K. Massie sweeps readers back to the extraordinary world of Imperial Russia to tell the story of the Romanovs' lives: Nicholas's political naivete, Alexandra's obsession with the corrupt mystic Rasputin, and little Alexis's brave struggle with hemophilia. Against a lavish backdrop of luxury and intrigue, Massie unfolds a powerful drama of passion and history--the story of a doomed empire and the death-marked royals who watched it crumble.

Reviews for Nicholas and Alexandra
Having finished "Peter the Great - His life and World" which I deeply appreciated I decided to try this book from the same author, and again I was not disappointed.
Although the story flows in a slightly different manner, more personalised on Nicholas and his family, (possibly due to additional wealth of sources of information available) but with less background than the epic "Peter the Great", it is a satisfying read, and in the end one can only wonder: what a life. could they have done it differently??? by JDP
