1918: Pretty, vivacious Grand Duchess Maria Romanov, the nineteen-year-old daughter of the fallen Tsar Nicholas II, lives with her family in suffocating isolation, a far cry from their once-glittering royal household. Her days are a combination of endless boredom and paralyzing fear; her only respite are clandestine flirtations with a few of the guards imprisoning the family--never realizing her innocent actions could mean the difference between life and death
1973: When Val Doyle hears her father's end-of-life confession, "I didn't want to kill her," she's stunned. So, she begins a search for the truth--about his words and her past. The clues she discovers are baffling--a jewel-encrusted box that won't open and a camera with its film intact. What she finds out pulls Val into one of the world's greatest mysteries--what truly happened to the Grand Duchess Maria?
