The Lost Crown shows the effects of the Bolshevik Revolution on the Romanov family. Sarah Miller starts out the book in the months preceding the revolution. She highlights the family's humanity through their jokes and their taking care of soldiers returning from the front lines. Their lives change as their father abdicates and the Provisional Government takes control. This change brings in the meat of the book, where the royal family is confined under house arrest.
