Lyhyt elämäkerta
Carolly Erickson is a distinguished biographer and historian as well as an historical novelist. She writes primarily about famous women in European history. "I have found the past compelling since the age of fourteen or so," she once remarked. Even before she began her undergraduate work in history at the University of Washington, she had "a feeling I might some day write history for the general reader." To support herself, she has played the piano in cocktail lounges in New York City. She currently spends part of her year in Hawaii and part in the Lake Chelan Valley in Washington State.

Entertaining and memorable, but peppered with thin, bad takes based on thin, bad readings of history. Plus bonus fatphobia and slut-shaming, which sort of comes with the territory (poor Caroline) but the text sure does revel in it.

I found "The Tsarina's Daughter" by Carolly Erickson to be an enjoyable read. Frankly, the negative reviews have me baffled. People, this is a Historical Fiction. Key word being fiction! As stated by Ms. Erickson in the "Note To The Reader" as the end of the novel, "Though in this historical entertainment the heroine Tatiana survives to a ripe old age and tells her remarkable story, the real Tatiana Romanov, sadly did not. She was executed with her family in Ekaterinburg in 1918, and all her hopes, plans and loves died with her.
The "Tsarina's Daughter" is an imaginative retelling of Tatiana's story with many invented characters and events added to the historical background...."
I enjoyed reading Ms. Erickson's well-written, imaginative take on the Romanov family. If you are looking for a different prospective on the Romanovs, this might be the novel for you!

This was a really interesting story about a subject I knew nothing about. Mary Broad, was arrested for robbery in 1786 and transported to the new penal colony in Australia. The story offers a reality check as to what prisoners endured during these times. Mary's story was probably a unique one, gaining her a bit of celebrity status documented in the few pieces of her history we have today.

The stories of torture and abuse were very difficult to read. These events took place at the same time Jane Austen was writing about, yet they're totally different worlds…

Besides the irritating footnotes/endnotes, I really enjoyed reading through this.

I also learned two new words: horripilating and hardihood.

Finally, what's an anti earthquake pill?? Is this some 18th century term for birth control?
