"Riveting... Stachniak has uncovered a treasure trove of rich material... The real core of Stachniak's tale is that [Catherine and Elizabeth] are women... Casts light over recent Russian history too, which is exactly what historical fiction should do" -- Jane Smiley * Globe and Mail * "A wonderful novel, riven with intrigue and startling details, the sort to savour on a long winter evening" * Daily Telegraph * "The kind of big busty read that sends you back to the history books" * The Sunday Times * "Extraordinarily absorbing... will have you on the edge of your seat" * Daily Mail * "A wonderful tale of the Imperial Russia court in all its glittering glory. Eva Stachniak vividly brings to life the early years of the meek young bride who would become the terrifying, fascinating Catherine the Great" -- Kate Williams, author of England's Mistress and Becoming Queen
