Amazing!!, Feb. 2 2012
This is a must read for anyone interested in history. An easy, very interesting read with a wealth of information, that obviously has been extremely well researched that almost reads like a novel. It kept me captivated the whole way through. I could hardly put the book down. After reading this book you feel like you really know Catherine personally. Amazing insights into a most incredible woman that takes you from her simple life as a young girl in Prussia to the throne and grandeur of the Russian Court. Full of intrigue, conspiracy, power, love, and relationships. After reading this book it makes me want to travel to Russia, St. Petersburg in particular, to see her legacies, and walk where she walked. An inspirational book about an inspirational woman!
