It makes me so sad and frustrated reading about those four young girls and their brother Alexei. One could argue about the culpability of the Tsar and Tsarina in the disaster that befell their family and their Empire, but their children were innocent.

Completely, 100% innocent. And they suffered the most, especially in the final brutal moments in the Ekaterinburg basement cellar.

Thanks for the heads up, Carolyn. I will definitely be reading this!
