The Kitchen Boy: A Novel of the Last Tsar - Robert Alexander This book starts out similar to other Romanov stories emphasizing the family's devotion to each other and God. The story was somewhat slow with most of the real action and plot twists taking place in the final chapters. If you prefer accuracy in your historical fiction, you may be disappointed. This was a factor in my rating, as was the repetitiousness.
