In an enthralling work of historical suspense, Ariel Lawhon unravels Anna Anderson's 50-year battle to be recognized as Anastasia Romanov. Germany, February 17, 1920: A young woman bearing an uncanny resemblance to the youngest Romanav daughter, believed to be killed in the Bolshevik execution of the Russian Imperial family, is pulled shivering and senseless from a canal in Berlin. As rumors begin to circulate through European society that Anastasia has survived, old enemies and new threats are awakened. With a brilliantly crafted narrative, Lawhon wades into the most psychologically complex territory yet: the nature of identity itself.
