My Name is Olga- Chapter 1Chapter 1: The Little Grand Duchesses
"Girls! Come here!" frantically called Miss Eager, darting about the Alexander Palace
I heard her voice, but was much too busy to answer her. It was 1901, and I was five.
Listen now as my early childhood memories unfold.

Anastasia is just about to turn away from the door when she hears Dimitri's reply.
