Review:

`By casting her narrative in the form of a first-person journal, Gulland invests it with vividness and immediacy, so that one sometimes forgets it is a historical novel, and reads it with a real sense of surprise at each development` Times Metro

'Straightforward and likeable re-telling of the life of Josephine Buonaparte is laced with ribbons and period detail' The Independent

'Packed with captivating historical detail' The Daily Telegraph

'Richly detailed historical novel' Nottingham Evening Post

'Full of those colourful details and encounters that often make historical fiction more appealing than its austere sister, real History' Kirkus Reviews

'The legendary Josephine, wife and love of Napoleon, recounts the events in her life. It is easy to escape into Josephine's world and not want to return' Margaret George, author of The Memoirs of Cleopatra

'What a joy! Historical fiction with equal measures heart, soul and intellect. With complete authority and searing intimacy Ms Gulland has captured and delivered to us the voice of one of history's most fascinating women' Robin Maxwell, author of The Queen's Bastard

Book Description:

The first book in the incredible trilogy inspired by the life of Joséphine Bonaparte
