    The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Peter the Great, Nicholas and Alexandra, and The Romanovs returns with another masterpiece of narrative biography, the extraordinary story of an obscure young German princess who traveled to Russia at fourteen and rose to become one of the most remarkable, powerful, and captivating women in history.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Great read for learning about Catherine the Great. Now I want to go to Petersberg to see her contributions to preserving art and building.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story/history of Catherine the Great was fascinating and I liked the approach of going to the facts rather than over dramatazation. The facts alone have plenty of drama.


    Any additional comments?

    The first 3/4's of the book is more story through facts. The last 4th is like a summary of achievements. Both had merit.
