2930 Anastasia: The Lost Princess, by James Blair Lovell (read 19 Nov 1996) This book is about Anna Anderson, who some thought was the Grand Duchess Anastasia, and her husband Jack Manahan. They led a very eccentric life--their home in Charlottesville, VA., was a total mess. She died Feb 12, 1984. He died Mar 22, 1990. He was always very odd, and did crazy things. A large section of this book tells of the author's effort to determine if there was a fifth daughter, born in 1903, which was gotten away from the Czar and Czarina and raised by a Dutch couple. The author of this book is convinced that Anna Anderson was Anastasia--and in fact this makes the book less convincing. The book does not cover anything about research after the Soviet collapse which tends to show that all the family died at Ekaterinberg. This was not a good book, but it was worth reading and told some new things. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312111339, Paperback)

Anastasia--the name has become synonymous with enigma. the story of the youngest daughter of the last Russian czar has become one of the world's most favorite romantic fascinations, and is one of the strangest, saddest, most haunting riddle of the twentieth century: Did she escape the massacre of the Russian Royal family in 1917?

James Blair Lovell's exhaustive search for the truth culminates in the definitive book, the last word on the mystery of Anastasia. Drawn form eyewitness testimony, medical and scientific study, handwriting analysis, and a cache of thousands of documents, letters, paintings, private photographs, and audio tapes, Anastasia: The Lost Princess separates the facts from the myths, and establishes beyond a shadow of a doubt the identity of the real Anastasia. Filled with romance, intrigue, drama, and startling revelation, it is Anna Anderson's true story.
