Rasputin’s Daughter by Robert Alexander.

R

Audiobook.  Mary Susan’s recommendation of Rasputin’s Daughter was a bit less enthusiastic than for his book The Kitchen Boy, but I found it equally intriguing.  It was really a good book to hear; in particular, I enjoyed hearing the correct pronunciation of all those Russian names.  I was moved to pick up a biography of Rasputin in our library by Brian Moynahan which I suspect Robert Alexander used in writing his book.  One day I read about the heresies of that day, especially the khlysta, and the next day heard a similar description as part of the novel.  What an amazing story, and what a character he was.
