Azar, Helen -Maria Romanov: Third Daughter of the Last Tsar, Dia

Azar, Helen -Maria Romanov: Third Daughter of the Last Tsar, Dia
In Maria Romanov: Third Daughter of the Last Tsar, Diaries and Letters, 1908-1918, by translator and researcher Helen Azar with George Hawkins, Mashka's voice is heard again through her intimate writings, presented for the first time in English. The Grand Duchess was much more than a pretty princess wearing white dresses in hundreds of faded sepia photographs; Maria's surviving diaries and letters offer a fascinating insight into the private life of a loving family--from festivals and faith, to Rasputin and the coming Revolution; it is clear why this middle child ultimately became a pillar of strength and hope for them all. Maria's gentle character belied her incredible courage, which emerged in the darkest hours of her brief life. "The incarnation of modesty elevated by suffering," as Maria was described during the last weeks of her life, she was able to maintain her kindness and optimism, even in the midst of violence and degradation. Gebonden editie, Engelstalig, 288 pagina's.
