AN UNCOMMON WOMAN is an enthralling biography of Princess Vicky - the Empress Frederick of Germany, the eldest daughter of Queen Victoria, the wife of Prussia's Crown Prince, and the mother of Kaiser Wilhelm II. It is also an epic story of wars and revolutions, the rise and fall of royal families, and the creation of modern Germany. Drawing on a vast amount of original family documents, Pakula offers an absorbing portrait of a brilliant and determined woman.

This book is worth reading if you like to read about royalty and you're very interested in Empress Vicky. I will keep this book but I found it very long and dense. The politics are extremely complicated and Hannah Pakula really doesn't simplify them. I thought that the writing could have been much clearer. It is certainly very detailed and has lots of good information but I didn't understand why it had to be so long.
