    Royal Diaries, The: Catherine, the Great Journey, (EBK)

    by Kristiana Gregory

    Fourteen-year-old Sophia is a princess living in the German state of Prussia. Although Sophia's father is a high-ranking general in the Prussian army, he is not of royal blood, and her mother has never been satisfied with their station in life. So she brings her daughter to the royal court in Moscow, where she may be chosen by Empress Elizabeth to marry her cousin Peter, Grand Duke of Russia.

    Sophia's family's honor and fortune depend on how she handles herself. Empress Elizabeth is the most powerful woman in all the land, known far and wide for her cruelty. One small misstep by Sophia; now known as Catherine; could mean disgrace and imprisonment for her family; or worse!

    Follow Catherine through the pages of her diary, as she records her experiences of separation from her family, arranged marriage, and betrayals. With strong characters and rich period details, Catherine's story will engage and delight fans of historical fiction.
