This is a many splendored work. Part love story, part biography and part history, it is attractive to many types of readers. While following Josephine through her life, the reader learns much about the era during which she lived and reigned; a France of colony, Revolution and Empire. Author Carolly Erickson's writing holds attention with the skill of a master. Enjoy, appreciate, savor!
research is solid and the book is factually informative. Where the purpleness of the prose arises is in the rather weak
character analyses, the at times slightly judgemental tone, and the lack of linkage of key events of Jospehine's life to the grand scheme of European events.
That said, this is an excellent and informative read, and well worth a look.
