I haven't read historical fiction in ages, and this was just the book to remind me to read it more often.

I know little to nothing about France under Napoleon's reign, but discovering it through the eyes of these characters was fascinating. There's mystery, romance, politics, intrigue...everything you'd want in a good piece of historical fiction.

Only snag for me was the different points of view -- I would have preferred maybe just Eliza and Hortense to narrate, just to cut down on some of the confusion.

Full review to come on!

Ange (Libby Blog) Schmelzer I couldn't finish this one. I hate when that happens but it just wasn't going to happen; there was something about the characters and plot that just didn't appeal to me at all.

Lea I was beginning to think this never happened to you!
