I love Susan Wiggs but sometimes her work is a little too historical for my taste. Especially her books with titles like this one. However, I enjoyed this one a lot. It was believeable and entertaining despite the fact that it is steeped in history. I loved the realtionship of the fictional characters to the historical ones. Great read.
Learned a lot about Napolean and Josephine too.
