Read in February, 2009

I LOVED this series, perhaps because I'm a bit burned out on Henry the VIII -era England but I love historical fiction. I have never taken a class on French history, nor did I have any clarity as to how and when Napoleon fit into the scheme of things, and this series actually did clear up a few historical points for me. This isn't heavy reading, but the journal-style writing is effective and clearly illustrates Josephine's experiences. This is no Nobel-winning literature, but this book is SUCH an escape, and so intriguing... I entirely fell into the tale.. makes me completely thankful I never lived in that era and that I've never pursued or been a part of another person's pursual of power.
