“At Sea, Nicholas worked two days a week. The other five he relaxed. In the morning, he rowed ashore to take long walks through the wild Finnish forest. When the Standart moored near the country estate of a Russian or Finnish nobleman, the owner might awake to find the Tsar at his door asking politely if he might use a court for tennis. Sometimes Nicholas walked alone with his children, searching the woods for mushrooms or wandering down a beach looking for bright-colored rocks.”
“Like the fingers on a hand — first headstrong Olga, then Tatiana the tallest, Maria most hopeful for a ring, and Anastasia the smallest. These were the daughters of Tsar Nicholas II, grand duchesses who lived a life steeped in tradition and privilege. They were young women each on the brink of starting her own life.” - Sarah Miller
