The Many Lives and Secret Sorrows of Josephine B.

The Many Lives & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. - Sandra Gulland I really enjoyed this story; I'm already looking forward to the next one.Sanrda Gulland takes you seamlessly through the many different stages of Rose's (Josephine's) life. From her Creole upbringing to her marriage to a French rebel to her imprisonment to her introduction to the sallow and ungainly, yet determined Napoleon Bonaparte. It was a thrilling story! I have never seen the French Revolution from any point of view besides the King and Queen.The only thing that keeps the story from being 5 stars is the lack of a deep emotional connection. Even though it is written as a diary account, I never feel like she really shares Rose's thoughts and emotions as deeply as she could have. Nevertheless, it is a fantastic story.
