Frequently bought together
Fascinating! Gill captures this family and this period of history so vividly. Such a wonderful book -- Hazel Gaynor
I devoured The Lost Daughter in two days. I adored it. Gill Paul makes complex history so accessible. So real. And I'm fascinated by that time period. She weaves an addictive plot while having real characters. As usual, she made me cry. It is one of my favourite of Gill's novels. It was truly exceptional -- Louise Beech
Another brilliant read from Gill Paul. Two gripping stories entwine and kept me captivated till the last page. Kept me looking forward to getting back to it each evening -- Tracy Rees
I'm always so impressed by the depth of Gill Paul's knowledge of the periods she chooses to write about. With The Lost Daughter, she has returned to the tragic Romanovs, creating another fascinating story that asks the haunting question: 'what if one of them escaped?' A pleasure to dive into -- Kate Riordan

Gill Paul is an author who weaves contemporary and historical stories - this is her sixth historical novel - I've read all of them and this her best by far. She's explored the Romanovs before in her novel The Secret Wife which I loved and I couldn't imagine that she could better it - but she has. The novel is a sweeping epic which takes in 50 years of Russian history. She tells an extraordinary story - which is totally believable - in fact I do wonder if Gill knows something from historical archives that we don't! I really like her contemporary character Val - she's likeable and complex and a survivor and as a reader you really care for her. Maria Romanov is given humanity - she's a brilliant heroine. It's a love story and a mystery and a gripping thriller all rolled into one. Enjoy.
Gill Paul again takes us into two differing timelines and back to Russia and also Australia this time. I've always been fascinated by the Romanovs and also Rasputin and that era so this one appealed to me straightaway, of course. While it is fiction, it would be so nice to think at least one of the princesses survived......let's face it, all the protagonists are long-dead now and so we'll never really know. My "favourite" has always been Olga. I've read many differing mentions of who people thought was the most attractive of the four and I've always thought Olga was. My favourite character in this was Peter-he was just lovely.
It was interesting reading about what happened to simple Russians after the family's execution......you have to wonder why it ever happened as it did nothing to help their people in the least. It sounded an horrendous time to have lived over there.....and I use THAT term very loosely !
A couple of times she had me sniffing away, especially in her Afterword.....the very last passage had me howling......I like that in this one there were a couple of photos as well.
The ONLY error I think was not having an apostrophe with enquiries' desk but I could be wrong there.
If you've not read this author you really must give her a go.......her writing is truly interesting and keeps you fascinated the whole way through. You can thank me later !
