This book is not just for historical fiction fans, or lovers of the romance genre; this tale of love and loss, of pain and grace, and war and victory is a story that every reader both young and old should take part in. The literary prose is noteworthy, the fiction elements perfectly blended with the historical and the plotline so perfect that history becomes human and touches hearts in a way only great books have the supernatural ability to do.
Though she was betrothed to this general, he went to Paris and met a more beautiful woman by the name of Josephine de Beauharnais. The general she had loved became the self-crowned King of France and a man known for his victories both far and wide. Within the murky tale we read of guillotines, first loves, wars, history, family responsibilities, court intrigues, balls, parties and so very much more.
Reading a tale of truth and fiction combined through the eyes of a single girl turned queen, draws the reader into the tale and makes the characters living and breathing people that jump from the pages as if we knew them personally.
A first person narrative of wars we all have read of, mixed with the drama and captivation of love makes this story unutterably unforgettable. Readers will want to cry and smile and grip the book as if it were a lifeline to another time and place.
The book will whisk you away as if the wars, the victories, and the parties were being played out before your very eyes. Right until the last page, you will witness intrigue, action, love, passion, pain, fear and every other emotion written into words that will hold you and grip you until the last of the story is told.
