Here's the perfect book to roll into fall with.
It's big, it's fascinating, and you won't want it to end!
Summary (from Goodreads):
An irresistible story of love and loss, of political intrigue and revolution, and of the transformation of an impressionable young girl into one of the most sophisticated and powerful women in history, The Josephine Bonaparte Trilogy comprises three spellbinding books inspired by the life of Josephine Bonaparte. From her simple childhood on the French island of Martinique and her first heady experience in revolutionary Paris to her turbulent marriage to Napoleon, Josephine's destiny lay with the man determined to rule all of France, determined to make her Empress.
I read these books as a whole set published in one great big book. It took a long time to read but I enjoyed it thoroughly and was actually quite disappointed when it ended...I wanted it to go on and on. Josephine Bonaparte was an incredibly fascinating woman who led an incredibly fascinating life.
This book made me want to learn even more about her and Napoleon. They seemed to live one of those wonderfully great love stories that is amazing and tragic all at once. I guess that's how it is with such dynamic people though.
I highly, highly recommend this book to almost anyone. It has adventure, war, treachery, crazy in-laws, a mothers passion, and a love for all time. Loved it!
