The Josephine B. trilogy are my favourite books. I could not put them down!
Good story. Started to drag at end. 1st of series on Josephine Bonaparte.
Loved this series. Easy read
The “Jospehine B Triology” is the best series I’ve read in years. It is epic in length and subject material, and I was completely absorbed into her world. I highly, highly recommend.
I know I am not the first to praise Gulland's writing. One of the most astonishing things about this book is how the author's extensive research has been woven into the story to illuminate the period and the characters rather than weighing them down.
did not finish it
I knew little of Josephine Bonaparte's life before her time as Napoleon's wife, and this story, although fiction, fleshed her out a bit for me. I was expecting 'many lives' but found a progression like any other life would have had living through the tumult that was the French Revolution. Rose 'Josephine' sounded the same in her diary no matter what her age was supposed to be. I think this was not intended but only a result of the author wanting to get through the colonial childhood and get to the adult life in France. At times I was wanting more detail but since this is a diary, I understood that a lot would be left to my imagination. As historical fiction, I think this book succeeds, and I am looking forward to the second and third in this trilogy.
Distant Hours by Kate Morton
This book is so good, almost finished with the second then on to the last. She's an amazing writer.
