The Girl With The Crystal Soul is a novel about Olga and her last few months of life before she, along with her family, was brutally murdered in July 1918. I have always been fascinated by Olga and wonder who she might have been if she had lived.
A shallow grave discovered in a forest in Russia in 1991 contains the disfigured and incomplete remains of nine men women and children. Could they be the Romanov family who disappeared in July 1918?
May Dawson, a New Zealander living and working in London as a forensic anthropologist is asked to join an international team of experts tasked with recovering and identifying the bodies.
What is the mysterious link between May and Olga and where are the two missing children? May cannot rest until her promise to Olga has been fulfilled and the family are reunited.
