Daria Gradov is an elderly grandmother living in rural western America in the 1980s. What her neighbors and even her children don’t know, is that she began her life as the Grand Duchess Tatiana, daughter of Tsar Nicholas II and Tsarina Alexandra. The Tsarina’s Daughter centers around young Tania, who lives a life of incomparable luxury in pre-Revolutionary Russia, from the magnificence of the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg to the family’s private enclave outside the capital. When her younger brother is diagnosed with hemophilia, the key to his survival lies in the mysterious powers of an illiterate monk, Rasputin. Soon his hold over her parents threatens to destroy them all. But war breaks out and revolution sweeps her family from power and into claustrophobic imprisonment. Then into Tania’s life comes a young soldier whose life she helps to save and who becomes her partner in daring plans to rescue the imperial family from the executioner’s bullets.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lovingly told, The Tsarina’s Daughter is a story with a bittersweet ending, as real history sometimes is. Beautifully written, this is a terrific book to curl up with on a chilly autumn day.” Romance Reviews Today
“Erickson never lets harsh fact impede a good story…the suspense never flags…More entertainment than history, but all the better for it.” Kirkus Reviews
“Erickson weaves historical details into this imaginative account of how Tatiana Romanov, the second of Nicholas and Alexandra’s four daughters, escaped the Bolshevik assassins who killed Russia’s royal family in 1918.…Despite knowing the real Tatiana’s fate, readers will rejoice in the fictional version’s survival. A sure winner.” Library Journal
“A top-notch narrative…Erickson creates an entirely convincing historical backdrop, and her tale of a family’s fall from power and a country in transition is both romantic and gripping.”  Publishers Weekly
“Clever and enchanting . . . [Erickson] has spun a sensitive and entirely believable story of the young woman’s coming of age in the maelstrom of World War I and the ensuing collapse of the dynasty. It is a love story, to be sure, but what makes this book remarkable (and a compulsive read) is the author’s superb understanding of the fascinating personalities of the Imperial Family and the Russian court. Highly recommended.”  Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Suspenseful and detailed, the novel captures a dramatic moment in history and will sear you with sorrow for this doomed daughter of the last tsar.” People
