I loved the book! I like the way how the author put some Russian words into the story, and explained each of the princesses feelings.

this book was a wonderful book because the stories for each grand duchess was really real and as I read it, it felt like I was living the lives of OTMA.

This was a really fun book to read!! I didn't even know about these people so it was nice to learn something as well as get some interesting reading in. My only regret is that the ending is so sad...
