A well written novel and I would recommend you read it if you enjoy historically based fiction.
Eva Stachniak combines historical detail with brilliant, lyrical adaptation and creates characters that keep the reader turning the page for more and more.
I finished this book hoping that, even with the last page, I would feel more interest in the characters and their world.
I enjoyed the weaving of history and good story telling. I hope there's a planned sequel that explores Catherine's later reign an the tense relationship with Poland. Read morePublished 8 days ago by candm
