9780061829604: Empress: A Novel (P.S.)

Propelled by a shrewd intelligence, an extraordinary persistence, and a friendship with the imperial heir, Wu rose through the ranks to become the first Empress of China. And yet, from the moment of her death to the present day, her name has been sullied, her story distorted, and her memoirs obliterated by men taking vengeance on a women who dared become Emperor. This amazing historical novelization reveals a fascinating, complex figure who in many ways remains modern to this day.
