5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 31 Dec 2008
This review is from: Tales of Passion, Tales of Woe (Paperback)
If you are keen on Josephine in her own right and don't think she is just the shadow of Napoleon then this is the book for you.

She has often been portrayed as a hussy/tart but Sandra gulland has done marvalously in putting her personality, emotion, soul and heart into word and onto the page.

I am an ardent fan of Ms Beaucharnais/Bonaparte and if you are to then please buy the whole triology.

It is set in diary form and 1st person obviously and is done with great talant.You can just imagine what she must of been seeing and experencing as she wrote.. (if she had wrote it like as obviously this is a Alison Weir style book of "could be" diary.) the descriptions are excellent and I could not put it down and as you see their marriage slowly breaking apart, you feel it too. As you read her pain in the prison when the revolt hit... this is in her 1st book, you cry with her and can imagine every image and smell and sight.

Trust me it is an absolute must read and gets into the very heart and soul of the beautiful and famous Josephine Boneparte.

PLUS... you get little indicators like this * and at the bottom the * starts to tell you little facts of why things have happened and/or just general historical facts for your pleasure. YOU CAN'T BEAT THAT!

Well done Sandra.
