Product description

Review

"Kate Williams' entrancing biography of Josephine is a sparkling account of this most fallible and endearing of women." (Daily Mail)

"Williams is the Cole Porter of 18th century history. Her serious and thorough investigation is presented in an accessible and playful way." (The Times)

"A whirlwind tour of French history." (Virginia Rounding Telegraph)

"Scintillating . . . Williams illuminates [Josephine's character] with skill." (Country Life)
