Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0439568900, Hardcover)

Acclaimed authors Gerald and Loretta Hausman weave together the stories of Napoleon and Josephine and their turbulent love affair in this lavish and beautifully written novel.

As Josephine grows up on the tropical island of Martinique, she dreams of moving to Paris to live a life of glamour. An arranged marriage to a French nobleman brings her to Paris, but not to the lifestyle she dreamt of. After a divorce and a terrible time during the French Revolution, she holds a party that Napoleon, the general who has grown famous after a series of military victories, attends. A tumultuous relationship develops that is filled with separations and fights and the most passionate declarations of love ever uttered.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:17:53 -0400)

From her childhood in Martinique, Josephine knew that she would someday be "more than a queen," and she eventually fulfills her destiny at the side of Napoleon Bonaparte as Empress of the French.
