Can you recommend any good books on Tatiana or her family?

Like I said before, I only know the basics... I know that she was considered the most beautiful of the four daughters of Nicholas II. Like her siblings, she had a very strict upbringing (sleeping on military cots without pillows, cold showers, etc.). She possessed many leadership qualities and was nicknamed "the Governess" by her sisters. She is also thought to be Alexandra's favourite daughter and worked with her mother and older sister as a Red Cross nurse during the First World War. Her hair is short in my avatar because she had it cropped after contracting typhoid.

Here are a couple more pictures of her that I like:

Nicholas and Alexandra is a good book (later made into a very good movie) about the whole family and their lives from the birth of the Tsarevitch through their murders. I cant think of any that are just about her though. When i became Russian Orthodox I really got into the culture and read everything I could on Russian History I was a real Russaphile. The Orthodox Church has canonized the entire family as Martyrs and our Church had a big Icon of them on the left side of the Church. I also bought a smaller Icon of the family infact I still have it in my room. Sad Story. May their commie murderers rot in hell.

It's a coloured picture of Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna. I found it in a picture thread on their forum... Here's the original:

Here's a beautiful rendition of the breathtaking hymn "God save the Tsar" ("Bozhe, Tsarya khrani") composed by Prince Alexey L'vov, along with some pictures of the Russian imperial family.

Actually, the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad canonised them as Martyrs but the Patriarchal Church canonised them only as Passion Bearers, not quite Martyrs.
