German Woman

description:

A fictional autobiography of Alexandra Feodorovna.

unique features:

Janet Ashton uses Alexandra to narrate her own story as she looks back on 
her life during what proved to be her last days in the Ipatiev House in 
Ekaterinburg.

At the back of the book there is a Cast of Characters to help identify 
people in the text who one does not immediately recognise.

in my opinion:

By writing the book in this way Alexandra comes alive as real person against 
the familiar backdrop of her story. The book will either make you feel more 
sympathetic to her or make you annoyed at her for neglecting her duties as 
an Empress - read it and decide for yourself.
