17 posts | 5 read | 28 to read
A Russian princess. An extraordinary sacrifice. A captivating secret... From the author of The Secret Wife, a gripping journey through decades and across continents, of love, devastating loss and courage against all odds. 1918 With the country they once ruled turned against them, the future of Russia's imperial family hangs in the balance. When middle daughter Maria Romanova captivates two of the guards, it will lead to a fateful choice between right and wrong. Fifty-five years later . . . Val rushes to her father's side when she hears of his troubling end-of-life confession: 'I didn't want to kill her.' As she unravels the secrets behind her mother's disappearance when she was twelve years old, she finds herself caught up in one of the world's greatest mysteries. Readers adore the novels of Gill Paul: 'One of my favourite books of this year. Fascinating, glamorous and utterly compelling... historical fiction at its best' Tracy Rees, author of The Hourglass 'A marvellous, perfect read' The Sun 'Cleverly crafted and enthralling. A triumph' Dinah Jeffries 'A wonderful book. Loved the seamless blend of fact and fiction' Kathryn Hughes 'Compelling and full of surprises ****' The Lady 'This engrossing, heart-wrenching novel moves between the decades, combining history with fiction to portray the tragic events of the Russian Revolution' Sunday Express 'Riveting! I thoroughly enjoyed this intriguing tale of friendship and betrayal' Rosanna Ley 'With superb story-telling and a lush backdrop of period detail...a novel that is impossible to put down, abouttwo women who are impossible to forget. I loved it!' Hazel Gaynor 'I devoured Another Woman's Husband in a few days. This has bestseller written all over it' Louise Beech 'With seamless ease Gill evokes the events and characters of two eras...with great verve and a smattering of delicious fictional licence. Delightful' Liz Trenow 'Gill Paul has taken two of the twentieth century's most enigmatic women, one revered, the other reviled, and woven them into a deft story of friendship and betrayal' Kate Riordan

What if Maria, not Anastasia, was the Romanov daughter who survived. What would her life have been like? And how could she possibly be connected to an abused wife living in Australia? Paul‘s novel imagines just this scenario in a completely engrossing historical fiction. Full review at https://booknaround.blogspot.com/2019/08/review-lost-daughter-by-gill-paul.html

Very good. Loved the gripping nature of this book, even though I had worked out the twist early on it was still worth the journey to see if I was right. Highly recommended especially if you have read The Secret Wife as it does allude to the story but it's not necessary to have read it. Thank you #Netgalley for a proof copy even though I did mainly read my print copy.

Gonna have to read this real quick if I want to be up to date with her books if I am seeing her next Mon (4th March) 🤞🤞🤞 I am not too late to book my place tomorrow morning when the library is open in the morning.

Birdsong28 @remaxfield You should also stack the tagged book as it is her 'First' Romanov book and I think it should be read first as I am finding references to it in this book. 9mo
remaxfield Thank you!! 9mo

Love #Waterstones pre ordering as I have got this a week early 🎉🎊📚📖

Cathythoughts I have it on kindle ( thanks to you ) sounds good 👍🏻. Waterstones are so fast for getting in my orders too 13mo
Birdsong28 @Cathythoughts I have also got it on Kindle as it was only 99p and I absolutely love Gill Paul have got most of her books on both Kindle and Print. I also get on Kindle so if I want in the future I get the audiobooks cheap 😀📚 13mo
Cathythoughts Thankyou ! I‘m interested to try her now. What is the best one to start with .... ? 13mo
Birdsong28 @Cathythoughts It depends on what you are interested in Women and Children first is about the Titanic, No Place for a Lady is a love story set in The Crimea War (not normally my thing but it was really good), The Affair is set on the film set of Cleopatra (Elizabeth Taylor), Another Woman's Husband about Wallis Simpson and Diana Princess of Wales and The Secret Wife is set in the same time in Russia as the lost daughter. 😀📚📖 13mo
Cathythoughts Ah you are very good ! Thankyou. They all sound good. I‘ll just start with the one I have then & get a flavor...& I‘ll save your comments for future reference 👍🏻❤️ 13mo
