In reality, the Romanov family burned their diaries some time prior to being assassinated. Anastasia’s Diary by Carol Dommermuth is a fictionalized version of what Anastasia Romanov’s diary might have looked like during the last few months before her father abdicated, beginning just prior to Rasputin’s death, and then on through the first several months of incarceration, first at the palace and then at Tobolsk. The book follows the known events combined with what a 15-16 year old girl would likely be thinking, making it a nice, short introduction to the last months in the Romanovs’ lives.
