I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon

Galley Giveaway

Enter for a chance to win one of ten galleys.

Ariel Lawhon, a rising star in historical suspense, unravels the extraordinary twists and turns in Anna Anderson's 50-year battle to be recognized as Anastasia Romanov. Is she the Russian Grand Duchess, a beloved daughter and revered icon, or is she an imposter, the thief of another woman's legacy?

             Countless others have rendered their verdict. Now it is your turn.

“A young Tsarina traveling towards tragedy and an aging Grand Duchess penniless and betrayed. Twin stories so gripping you will believe history itself can be rewritten. Told with masterful intensity and moments of true human compassion.”—Helen Simonson, New York Times bestselling author of The Summer Before the War

Ariel Lawhon is a masterful storyteller; I Was Anastasia is a wild ride, extravagant with its vivid sensory experiences and page turning suspense. Inspired by history, and infused with imagination and intrigue, this novel satisfies with every twist and turn.”—Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Driftwood Summer and The Bookshop at Water’s End

“Was Anna Anderson really the only survivor of the Romanovs or was she a persistent fraud? Somehow, Lawhon, a masterly writer, not only leads her readers to ponder this riddle, but to care about it as well. This is a deft and deeply moving saga.”—Jacquelyn Mitchard, New York Times bestselling author of The Deep End of the Ocean

“I don’t know what’s most impressive about I Was Anastasia: the wildly inventive structure, the ferocious heroine (or is it two?), or the dark, twisted questions it raises about the stories we tell—both to others and to ourselves. Ariel Lawhon has written a gorgeous, haunting puzzle of a book that will grip you until the final page.”—Karen Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of Sin in the Second City and Liar Temptress Soldier Spy
