I would definitely reccomend this trilogy to anyone who is searching for a story that proves that hope lights even the darkest of times, and love endures through everything.
They are written in the guise of diary entries, and span the entire life of Josephine from her childhood in the Dominican Republic up to (and past) her days as Empress of France.
There are tremendous insights into daily life in the late 18th and early 19th centuries both in France and her colonies. The insights into the character of Napoleon are fascinating. One small incident: on their wedding night Napoleon was badly bitten by Josephine's jealous dog, who was hiding under the marriage bed. His angry screams roused the household and everyone ended up in the bedroom. Anxious to get rid of them, Napoleon called for needle and thread and sewed up his own wound.
Despite being history books, these three wonderful volumes are absolute page turners.
