Advanced Praise for Rasputin’s Daughter

“Employing the fast pace of a thriller and the ability to make a remote historical episode personal to the reader…”


“The combination of Alexander’s research and his rich characterizations produces an engaging historical fiction that offers
a Rasputin who is neither beast nor saint, but merely, compellingly human.”
Publishers Weekly


“For readers who like their juicy scandals topped with a hearty dollop of history, Alexander serves up a satisfying portrait
of a court in its last throes of decadence and intrigue.”
The Washington Post



With the same riveting historical narrative that made The Kitchen Boy a national bestseller and a book club favorite, Robert Alexander returns to revolutionary Russia for the harrowing tale of the notorious Rasputin’s final days as told by his bold daughter, Maria. With vast conspiracies mounting against her father, Maria must struggle with the discovery of Rasputin’s true nature – his unbridled carnal appetites, mysterious relationship with the Empress, rumors of involvement in secret religious cults-to save her father from his murderers. Swept away in a plot much larger than the death of one man, Maria finds herself on the cusp of the Russian Revolution itself.
