This story takes place concurrently with Batman: Year One but is not on the same level story-wise and art-wise. It actually uses entire pages and panels from Year One to expound on Selina's story during those same events. I felt the story was convoluted and jumped around a bit too much which makes it feel like there are gaps in the narrative; it didn't have a good flow to it. Part of the problem is that the art style and characters are vastly different from Year One, so by inserting those exact panels instead of having this artist redraw them in their own style, it's just jarring. The character models for Selina in particular are VASTLY different, she's practically unrecognizable as being the same character. The story does add a little to her Year One origin as the prostitute with a heart of gold (and a love of it), but not so much that I would list this as an "essential" Catwoman title for anyone other than her staunchest fans. Overall it's a decent read which did mildly entertain me, but definitely didn't amaze me.
