'The Romanov Royal Martyrs: What Silence Could Not Conceal' draws on letters, testimonies, diaries, memoirs, and other texts never before published in English to present a unique biography of Tsar Nicholas II and his family. The work aims to present the Royal Martyrs through the prism of their spiritual grandeur and the purity of their souls. A lively portrait of the royal family emerges from their own personal writings and in the writings of those who lived very close to them. The result is a psychographic biography that explores the essential character of the royal family in a deeper and inspiring way. Historians who worked on the project include Nicholas B.A. Nicholson, Helen Azar, and Helen Rappaport, all noted specialists in Romanov history. The book features a 48-page color photo insert. The acclaimed Russian artist Olga Shirnina colorized these high-quality images which appear here in print for the first time.
