This dual-time novel is centered around the romance and secret marriage of Grand Duchess Tatiana of Russia and Dmitri Malama. The pair meet and fall in love in the early days of World War I, when Dmitri is wounded in battle and taken to a royal palace-turned hospital to recover. There he is nursed by none other than the royal Tatiana and a sweet romance soon forms. If one knows history, plenty of trouble and heartbreak await these young lovers and that certainly plays out in the course of this novel. Dmitri's story unfolds interspersed with that of his descendant, Kitty Fisher, who unexpectedly inherits his cottage and starts a journey to uncover the mystery he left behind. Overall, this book made for fun reading and presents a plausible (if unlikely) case for the survival of at least one member of the famous Romanov family. ( )

Fascinating historical fiction

This was one of those "can't put it down until it's finished" books. The story of the last Tsar of Russia and his family has always been completely fascinating to me - from their early lives of unbelievable wealth, to their brutal slaughter after the revolution. But could any of them have survived? One possible answer to this mystery is imagined by the author in a beautiful, heartbreaking story about Grand Duchess Tatiana and the soldier she falls in love with shortly before the revolution. ( )

Grand Duchess Tatiana Romanoff falls in love with one of her fathers army officers at the beginning of the Russian revolution. However, as events unfold and the family is taken into captivity their love is in despair as are thoughts of their survival. As Tatiana and Dimitri’s love become stronger another love many many years in the future is unraveling. How these two women’s story of love, loss, and survival intertwine is amazing and triumphant. Another great novel by Gil Paul. ( )

Since I have been interested in the Romanov family and their sad history, I decided this might be a book worth reading. As I read through it, I wasn't convinced, and at one point when the author tinkered with history as I knew it, I even considered putting it down. I am glad I stuck with it, however. The author's notes at the end convinced me that the story written could have plausibly happened, although I am still sure the DNA evidence supports what we now know what happened to the last Tsar's family. I liked the back-and-forth with the present and the determined great-granddaughter who wants to learn more about her family. I'm glad I took the time to read this interesting book. ( )

I had already decided that this was a book that I really wanted to read before I got an email about participating in a blog tour for the book. I been interested in the Romanovs for years and reading a mystery book about Grand Duchess Tatiana was too tempting to resist. I was especially thrilled about reading about Tatiana instead of Anastasia who otherwise seems to be the most popular sister to write about.

The Secret Wife has two storylines. One in the present time with Kitty leaving her husband in London settling in her great-grandfather's remote cabin in America. There she discovers that her grandfather was a writer and she finds a pendant that once belonged to a dog whose owner was a Russain Grand Duchess. And, in the past storyline, we get to met her young grandfather when he wounded is taking care off by a very special nurse.

This is a what if story. What if Dmitri and Tatiana had really fallen in love and what if he had tried everything to save her life? What would be the consequences? I looked up Tatiana and Dmitri on Wikipedia and was surprised to learn that Dmitri really had existed and that Tatiana had nursed him when he was wounded. So, even thou the book is fiction, does it have some historical bearing. I especially like that the story took some surprising turns, that it turned out to be darker and sadder story than I had expected when I started to read the book. The people in this book make rash decisions and some decisions will have ramifications years later.

This is a book where both storylines are good. I liked reading about how Kitty discovered more about her great-grandfather life and thus learning more about her family. And, Dmitri's storyline is just as intriguing. ( )
