Ho - inutilmente - sperato fosse una biografia, invece sono finita in una specie di romance però in parte prende e cattura... forse proprio per la sua assurdità. Non condivido la scelta finale dell'autrice di saltare a pie' pari 30 anni e abbandonarci con la povera Caterina senza una conclusione apparente (quella storica la conosciamo) e quelli, secondo me, sarebbero stati i momenti più salienti da interpretare secondo il vissuto e i pensieri della protagonista.
