Alix and Nicky tells the dramatic story of Emperor Nicholas II and his wife, Alexandra Feodorovna, the last tsar and tsarina of Russia, a penetrating and deeply personal study that gives profound psychological insight into their marriage and how it shaped the events that engulfed them.
Through the letters and diaries written by the couple and by those around them, Virginia Rounding presents an intimate, penetrating, and fresh portrayal of these two complex figures and of their passion-their love and their suffering.
The story of Alix and Nicky, their four daughters known collectively as 'OTMA,' and their hemophiliac little boy Alexei, is endlessly fascinating, and Rounding makes these characters come alive, presenting them in all their human dimensions and expertly leading the reader into their world.
