內容簡介


紐約時報連續12週冠軍暢銷書

「雷帕波特精彩描繪了羅曼諾王朝如何走向滅亡之路。」──《時人雜誌》

「大眾對羅曼諾王朝姐妹的評價都帶有輕蔑的口吻,認爲她們是膚淺的異端份子,但這本書透過她們最私密的書信和日記,展現她們充滿智慧的思維。」──《出版者周刊》


紐約時報暢銷書作者繼The Last Days of the Romanvos及Caught in the Revolution後,闡述俄國末代沙皇尼古拉二世四位女兒們不為人知的故事。

羅曼諾夫王朝的姐妹們,就像當時的黛安娜王妃,尼古拉二世的四位女兒分別是Olga、Tatiana、Maria及Anastasia,因為美貌、身份地位及精緻奢華的生活品味受到世人矚目。在俄國革命前,四姊妹是歐洲王室中最閃耀的花朵,但1981年的俄國革命後,讓她們的後半生經歷了天翻地覆的變化。作者透過珍貴的私人書信及日記內容,發現四姐妹不如外界所想像,她們充滿智慧及敏銳的思維,即使在面臨1917年俄國革命仍臨危不亂。作者雷波特以不同的視角,帶領讀者一同重新認識沙皇家族四千金身為末代皇室的血淚史。

A 12-WEEK NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER


"Helen Rappaport paints a compelling portrait of the doomed grand duchesses." ―People magazine

"The public spoke of the sisters in a gentile, superficial manner, but Rappaport captures sections of letters and diary entries to showcase the sisters' thoughtfulness and intelligence." ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Last Days of the Romanovs and Caught in the Revolution, The Romanov Sisters reveals the untold stories of the four daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra.

They were the Princess Dianas of their day―perhaps the most photographed and talked about young royals of the early twentieth century. The four captivating Russian Grand Duchesses―Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia Romanov―were much admired for their happy dispositions, their looks, the clothes they wore and their privileged lifestyle.

Over the years, the story of the four Romanov sisters and their tragic end in a basement at Ekaterinburg in 1918 has clouded our view of them, leading to a mass of sentimental and idealized hagiography. With this treasure trove of diaries and letters from the grand duchesses to their friends and family, we learn that they were intelligent, sensitive and perceptive witnesses to the dark turmoil within their immediate family and the ominous approach of the Russian Revolution, the nightmare that would sweep their world away, and them along with it.

The Romanov Sisters sets out to capture the joy as well as the insecurities and poignancy of those young lives against the backdrop of the dying days of late Imperial Russia, World War I and the Russian Revolution. Helen Rappaport aims to present a new and challenging take on the story, drawing extensively on previously unseen or unpublished letters, diaries and archival sources, as well as private collections. It is a book that will surprise people, even aficionados.
