THE ROSE. Lorelei du Clere--A woman raised by the holy men of Saint Bernard's, she knows little of the world beyond the mountains, yet her very existence threatens the foundations of Napoleon Bonaparte's ever-widening empire.

THE RAVEN AND THE ROSE. In the face of an approaching army and its fiercely determined leader, Lorelei and Daniel risk everything for a love that should never have begun, but now can never be denied. (back cover)

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.
