Anastasia--the name has become synonymous with enigma. the story of the youngest daughter of the last Russian czar has become one of the world's most favorite romantic fascinations, and is one of the strangest, saddest, most haunting riddle of the twentieth century: Did she escape the massacre of the Russian Royal family in 1917?

James Blair Lovell's exhaustive search for the truth culminates in the definitive book, the last word on the mystery of Anastasia. Drawn form eyewitness testimony, medical and scientific study, handwriting analysis, and a cache of thousands of documents, letters, paintings, private photographs, and audio tapes, Anastasia: The Lost Princess separates the facts from the myths, and establishes beyond a shadow of a doubt the identity of the real Anastasia. Filled with romance, intrigue, drama, and startling revelation, it is Anna Anderson's true story.

A tour de force. A must read/study for all who find the story of the Lost Princess.Anastasia fascinating. James B. Lovell has explored the full story and travelled far and wide to investigate the life of Anastasia. His story will astound you .The embrace of the Princess is now lost forever. Shame on the human race for not beiieving and changing the course of history. If you read just one book on this enigma, make it this one. A magestic read.
