This is the first book in a three book series about Josephine Bonaparte's life. This book was interesting and so I will continue to read the series. This particular book follows Josephine's (Rose) life as a young girl all the way until she meets and marries Napoleon. It has been an informative book regarding the French Revolution although I admit all the French names mentioned (which I can't pronounce) sometimes leaves me a bit confused as to what exactly is happening politically. Josephine, according to this book, had a wide social circle and so be prepared to learn a lot of the French revolutionaries' and royalists' names.
