From the acclaimed author of Amelia Lost and The Lincolns comes a heartrending narrative nonfiction page-turnerand a perfect resource for meeting Common Core standards. When Russias last tsar, Nicholas II, inherited the throne in 1894, he was unprepared to do so. With their four daughters (including Anastasia) and only son, a hemophiliac, Nicholas and his reclusive wife, Alexandra, buried their heads in the sand, living a life of opulence as World War I raged outside their door and political unrest grew into the Russian Revolution.
Deftly maneuvering between the lives of the Romanovs and the plight of Russias peasants and urban workersand their eventual uprisingFleming offers up a fascinating portrait, complete with inserts featuring period photographs and compelling primary-source material that brings it all to life.
