Demise of the Russian Royal Family

This historical fiction novel is a very gripping tale of the demise of the Russian Royal family, the Romanovs, during the time of the Bolshevik Revolution. It is told in the first person of Leonka, the Romanov's kitchen boy at the time of their imprisonment in Siberia. Claiming to be the only living person who actually witnessed their murder, the now 90-year-old Leonka gives a very believable accounting of life with the Romanov's during their last months, and how they met with their horrible death. The book is filled with very accurate historical fact,and actual letters and secret notes that are now in museum archives in St. Petersburg. It's a great read and give credence to what might actually have happened to the 2 Romanov children whose bodies were never found.
