Rasputin’s Daughter

Rasputin's Daughter

—4—

In Robert Alexander’s Rasputin’s Daughter, Maria, the daughter of the Russian mystic Rasputin, guides us through the last days of her father’s life and the monarchy.  As the threat of revolution grows, Maria tries to save her father, although she cannot decide if he is a saint or a devil.

A good work of historical fiction, filled with plenty of facts about pre-revolution Russia.  Suspenseful and satisfyingly frustrating.

4/5

Try Rasputin’s Daughter if you enjoy historical fiction, such as The Illuminator by Brenda Rickman Ventrease or The Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks.
