Shelf Control – 28/08/19 #TheLostDaughter


Shelf Control is a meme run by Lisa @ Bookshelf Fantasies. It is a weekly celebration of the unread books on our shelves. Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up!

For more info on what Shelf Control is all about, check out Lisa’s introductory post.

Title: The Lost Daughter
Author: Gill Paul
Published: 2018
Length: 14 hours 25 minutes

What it’s about? (synopsis via Audible):


A Russian princess. An extraordinary sacrifice. A captivating secret…
From the number one best-selling author of The Secret Wife, The Lost Daughter is a sweeping, moving story of the tenacity of love and the power of forgiveness. Spectacular, enthralling and romantic, Gill Paul’s latest novel will stay with you forever.
1918. With the country they once ruled turned against them, the future of the Romanov family hangs in the balance. When middle daughter Maria captures the attention of two of the guards, it will lead to the ultimate 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 12 years old, she finds herself caught up in one of the world’s greatest mysteries..”
How and when I got it: I bought this back in November, and it’s been waiting patiently ever since!

Why I want to read it: I loved The Secret Wife by the same author and wanted to return to the story of the Romanovs with this book.

  1. Sounds fascinating! I don’t think I’ve read any historical fiction related to the Romanovs — will be interested in hearing more about this!
