How do high-powered women navigate their world? What concessions should they make to achieve domestic harmony? These important questions are raised through the parallel tales of Tanya Kagan Vandermotter, head of Russian art at a New York auction house, and Catherine the Great, the intelligent German princess who deposed her ineffectual husband to claim Russia’s throne for herself. Feeling obliged to compensate for her modest Russian Jewish immigrant background, Tanya is ultracompetent at her job, and coordinating an auction for a medallion that probably belonged to the empress would cement her career. However, her best-selling-writer husband chooses that moment to flee, seemingly threatened by her success.
