Another best seller for me. I am now deeply into my pre-Russina trip phase. This was a very readable and engrossing biography, which will be; a perfect intro to St. Petersburg where I go next month. She was the procurer of the art in the Hermitage, and ruled this empire where she arrived as a German princess at 14 years old. She had an active love life, and the boook gives a Russina eye view of Europena late 18th Century history, where as susual, Polland takes in the ear.
