I've never been an Anna Anderson supporter. Even before the DNA evidence came out, pictures of her looked completely unlike Anastasia. How could anyone have believed her stories?
This book doesn't provide me with the psychological understanding of Anderson's supporters that I'd been hoping for, but it does debunk a number of the myths that have grown up around the case and ably proves that Anderson was a Polish farm girl and not a member of the Russian royal family.
The text gets a bit repetitive and dull toward the end. I would have liked more stories from people who knew Anderson and her eccentric husband in Charlottesville--they could have been the most amazing episode of Hoarders ever.
