The Kitchen Boy

Robert D. Zimmerman’s The Kitchen Boy is a fictional account of the only survivor from the Ipatiev House, who retells the dramatic story of the events leading up to the Romanov Family’s death. The novel is set during the Bolshevik/Russian Revolution in the cold, isolated region of Siberia, perfectly correlating with the Royal Family’s disconnection from the rest of their homeland of Russia in its darkest hour. Leonka struggles with decades of guilt because of a horrid event that was ultimately inevitable, but must put aside his guilt so that his granddaughter may correctly fulfill the detailed instructions in his will.
