The Winter Palace

Set amidst the dazzling decadence and intrigue of the mid-eighteenth century Russian royal court, Winter Palace traces the rise of Catherine the Great through the eyes of the orphaned servant girl/spy who befriends her.  I’m a big fan of historical fiction, but this was my first venture into the realm of Russian history and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  If you’ve enjoyed  Phillipa Gregory and Alison Weir’s books about the Tudor courts you’ll appreciate the change of scenery.
