Gill Paul's book, the Secret Wife, is very entertaining. It is a "what if" book based on real people who are documented as having lived at one time. The story is told from the point of view of the great-granddaughter of Dmitri and in alternating chapters from the point of views of Dmitri himself many years earlier.
It is at the same time another story of the possibility that one of the Russian Romanov family members might have escaped death at the time the massacre the was ordered by the upcoming communist regime occurred. This time it was not daughter, Anastasia, but an older daughter of Czar Nicholas, Tatiana.
I always like when the book ends with historical notes explaining that some things are proven true while the rest of the story is pure imagination. And the author does do this for this book. Apparently there are actual documents with information that Tatiana and Dmitri did indeed know each other during the time in which Dmitri was hospitalized for his leg wound. And also documenting the fact that he gave Tatiana a dog as a gift. But it is likely that both died in the early 1900s and that the rest of the story is a product of the author's imagination. I was quite entertained.....If you are looking for a light read that moves quickly and does give one a bit of felling for an era, I recommend The Secret Wife. I read the book via audible.
