Book descriptionEdit

"4 January 1744, Zerbst
She leaned forward, taking my chin in her hand. "you must tell no one what I'm about to say—not your brother, not even Mademoiselle. Understand? I nodded. Was she afraid that if others knew the truth they might convince me to run away, thereby spoiling her scheme? "
If the King approves of you... then you and I shall be driven by sleigh out of Prussia, all the way to St. Petersburg, to meet with Empress Elizabeth.... She has selected you, my poor ugly daughter, to be Peter's fiancée. Unless you spoil things, the two of you will marry and one day rule all of Russia.""
