Guest: Ann Edwards Cannon, Author, and Staff, The King’s English Bookshop, Salt Lake City, UT The fate of the Russian Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov was one of the most fascinating mysteries of the 20th century: was she executed in a basement cellar with the rest of the royal family, or did she miraculously survive and resurface two years later in Berlin? The woman who showed up in Berlin, whom her detractors called Anna Anderson, spent 50 years trying to prove that she really was Anastasia and held claim to the Romanov fortune. DNA testing in the last couple decades has settled the matter, but still, author Ariel Lawhon has turned the story into the historical thriller “I Was Anastasia.”
