Celebrate Her Imperial Highness Anastasia Romanov's Birthday with The Last Romanov by Dora Levy Mossanen (Giveaway)

It might be Father's Day today (Happy Father's Day to all the Daddy's out there!) but tomorrow marks the 111th birthday of Her Imperial Highness, Anastasia Romanov, and to celebrate Sourcebooks is offering a fabulous giveaway! Continue reading for all the deets...

Even now in 2012, one of the greatest mysteries has been the fate of Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov of Russia, the last of four daughters born to the Tsar Nikolas and his wife Alexandra. After the tragic execution of the Russian Royal family in1918, officials were never able to recover the remains of Anastasia. Tales of her supposed escape from Russia have gripped thousands for decades, fueling speculation that a daughter of Russia’s last sovereign ruler survived the revolution that destroyed her immediate family.
June 18th marks what would be the 111th birthday of Her Imperial Highness Anastasia Romanov. In honor of the lost Duchess Sourcebooks would like to offer one copy of The Last Romanov by Dora Levy Mossanen.

The Last Romanov
She was an orphan, ushered into the royal palace on the prayers of her majestry. Yet, decades later, her time spent in the embrace of the Romanovs haunts her still. Is she responsible for those murderous events that changed everything?
If only she can find the heir, maybe she can put together the broken pieces of her own past-maybe she can hold on to the love she found. Bursting to life with the rich and glorious marvels of Imperial Russia, The Last Romanov is a magical tale of second chances and royal blood.

Add to your Goodreads shelf or purchase today at Amazon, Amazon Kindle, B&N and The Book Depository!

I remember reading about this story when I was a teenager, I read a book (non-fiction) about it, there was a made for tv movie about the woman claiming to be Anastasia. The story of what may have happened has always intrigued me and I'm so excited about this book! I would love to win a copy. Thanks so much for having this giveaway!

I was always taken by the Romanov tragedy. My grandfather escaped from Russia in a potato sack during one of the many wars. He went back and fought in for Russia in the early 1900's. He then came to the states but changed our last name upon entry - it was Romanov. Granted that was a common name but it still made me fantasize as a child that maybe we were "the Romanov's" :). I read everything I could get my hands on so I'm very interested in this tale.
Thank you.

Thanks for a great post and giveaway! I love history and the story of Anastasia is one of those that since it had a mystery is all the more intriguing. Modern science kinda takes the fun out of it sometimes, as it explains the things that we fantasize about. Don't get me wrong, it's great that her family finally got some answers and she was laid to rest properly, but it was also nice to fantasize that she got away and lived a long, incognito life.

I remember being in elementary school when I first learned about the Romanovs and I became obsessed with learning everything about them, particularly Anastasia.

I am very interested in Rasputin and Anastasia - I have read a few books before on it and this one is one I have been eyeing since I saw it the first time. Looks like a great read!

I've seen a few shows on the History Channel about this and about Rasputin. The one with the little old lady claiming to be Anastasia, and that she was gotten out of there before the assassins showed up.

I'm dying to read this book!
