    Summary

    The Tsar and his family live, and make it out of Yekaterinburg. But the Bolsheviks live too, and the tsar's power is greatly reduced. Tensions between the White Russians and Red Russians are simmering, and before they get to a boiling point, key leaders of both sides decide that something must be done to unite the two factions. A kicker is proposed at the end of several long policy and government changes: a Romanov daughter is set to marry a good and loyal son of the Bolshevik faction.

    That son is twenty-two year old Gleb Vaganov, a Party member who would really just like to read his copy of Pravda in peace, and that daughter is nineteen year old Anastasia Romanova, who wasn't planning on being married until all three older sisters walked down the aisle and still helps her brother Alexei with his pranks.

    In other words, it's as close to a romcom as you can get in 1920s Communist Russia.

    Summary

    "Anya looked up at him with those blue, Romanov eyes, and Gleb pushed away all uncertainty.  It couldn’t be her. He wouldn’t let it be her. He had heard Anastasia die and for the good of Russia and for Anya’s own safety she would stay dead if he had to kill her himself.

    But Anya’s eyes had lost their fear and now held only sadness.  “Would you have pulled the trigger,” she asked, her voice quiet, “if you’d been told?” "

    A retelling of the Broadway musical Anastasia in which a frightened Anya accepts a stranger's hand and his offer for tea, despite the nagging feeling that she recognizes his eyes.
