I received this book as a first-reads giveaway and I must say that I loved it! The story was engaging and the way it was told through several different viewpoints, letters, and quotes was unique. I haven't read much historical fiction, but after reading this, I would be interested in reading more. There was not a dull moment and the characters were very well formed. Pauline was one of the most outrageous characters that I have read about in a while and her story contrasted brilliantly with that of the Second Empress. I highly recommend this book!
