… with the Emperor

"Napoleon Bonaparte and Juliette Récamier were both highly influential and well-known in France, yet they were often at odds with each other. Their story played out on the European stage during a period of political upheaval and new political ideas. Napoleon gained power in the aftermath of the French Revolution, and he would go from spectacular victories to dismal failure. His defeat in the early nineteenth century would result in Europe acquiring new national borders and with that Britain, Russia, and the United States would gain greater international influence…."

An unbelievably awful book, short on anything remotely resembling actual history and long on fevered imagination. Once again this author takes a mostly imagined brief encounter between two historical personages and weaves a thin tale of intrigue and disagreement into something it defintely was not. The very idea that Recamier had a single thing to do with Napoelon's downfall is absurd, and this third-rate scribbler fails to make this nonsensical claim viable.

This book isn't even decent "women's fiction"--most women I know would be insulted by such pablum--and I don't understand why Pen & Sword continues to publish this author's pitiful and poorly written historical junk.

Avoid like COVID-19.
