Read in August, 2011

When I first took a peak inside this novel, I was concerned for the fact that it was written in the epistolary style, specifically, diary entries. I thought it would cause the plot to not flow well, but was I ever wrong.

In one day I completed half the novel and still anticipate going home each night to read some more. This is perhaps one of the most well-written novels about the French revolution that I have read and has given me a new character to emanate: Joséphine de Beauharnais.

Although I already have an obsession with this French period in time, it's great to gain another perspective and I now may have to get some history books on the Empress.

Sandra Dear Lisa,

Thank you so much for this wonderful review of Josephine B.! I just thought I should point out that you've posted it for Mistress of the Sun instead. I hope you read this novel, as well, and especially hope that you enjoy it as much.
