The love affair of Nicholas, the last Tsar of Russia, & his wife Alix, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, was a lifelong passion with a tragic end. Just how deep the passion, how tragic their deaths, now becomes clear with the release of their letters & diaries. This book draws exclusively on their own words -- they always wrote to each other in English -- as well as those of their family & individuals close to them. The result is an enthralling saga of one big, powerful, tightly-knit international family which also included Queen Victoria, George V, King of Greece & Denmark & others. A turbulent & page-turning narrative of love, passion, doom & death.

Review: A Lifelong Passion: Nicholas and Alexandra: Their Own Story

User Review  - Maria Quinlan - Goodreads

Just reading people's letters is interesting. These two should have been middle class family living in the suburbs, not rulers by any measure. When I say like it, I mean reading the letters gives insight, not agreeing with them whatsoever! Read full review
