ISBN 0297815202 The love affair of Nicholas the last Csar of Russia and his wife Alix,the granddaughter of Queen Victoria, was a lifelong passion with a tragic end. They always wrote to each other in English but the overall correspondence was through the large tangled European Royal Family, includes the rumblings of war and revolution and the influence of Rasputin, right up to the heart stopping accounts of their executioners. It is an enthralling read.
