I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon is an absorbing and fascinating work of historical fiction. Even though the subject matter is well-documented—the mystery of Anastasia Romanov and the famed imposter Anna Anderson—Lawhon takes a fresh spin on the topic in unexpected ways.
I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon is a historical fiction novel centered on the mystery of Anastasia Romanov. So I’ve been highly interested in the Anastasia story for quite some time thanks to an unlikely source: the 1997 musical cartoon. There is something fascinating about the potential that the Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna might have survived.
