Tales of Passion, Tales of Woe Summary

Tales of Passion, Tales of Woe by Sandra Gulland

Set in Paris at the end of the eighteenth century, Josephine begins to awaken to the reality of her recent marriage to 'the Corsican' Napoleon Bonaparte, now General-in-Chief of the Army of Italy. Through Josephine's diary entries and Napoleon's impassioned - almost disturbing - love letters, an astonishing portrait of an ingenuous, compassionate woman emerges, set against one of the most tumultuous periods in European history. Written in a spare but compelling style, this beautifully crafted novel brings the amazing drama of the legendary Josephine to vibrant life.

Tales of Passion, Tales of Woe Reviews

'By casting her narrative in the form of a first-person journal, Gulland invests it with vividness and immediacy, so that one sometimes forgets it is a historical novel, and reads it with a real sense of surprise at each development' -- Times Metro 'Straightforward and likeable re-telling of the life of Josephine Buonaparte is laced with ribbons and period detail' -- Independent 'Packed with captivating historical detail' -- Daily Telegraph Gulland has huge fun ... nothing seems beyond the grasp of her imagination. In her hands Josephine B puts in a stellar performance. Now tender, now triste, she's the Jackie O of her day' -- Guardian 'Richly detailed historical novel' -- Nottingham Evening Post
