Read full description of the books:
“You will be unhappily wed. You will be widowed. You will be Queen.”
To the fourteen-year-old Rose, eldest daughter of a poor plantation landlord, the fortuneteller’s prophecy is both thrilling and laughable.
Poorly educated and without a dowry, it seems unlikely that she will find any husband — much less a king.
But history tells a different tale, for Rose not only marries into a wealthy aristocratic family, she survives the French Revolution, outlives her first husband and is one day known as Joséphine Bonaparte.
In this beautifully-crafted novel, Sandra Gulland pulls back the veil of history to reveal an extraordinary life. From her simple childhood of the French island of Martinique to her first heady experience in French revolutionary Paris and her unhappy marriage to the unfaithful Alexandre, Rose’s destiny lies with a man determined to rule all of France, determined to make her Queen.

Read information about the authorI'm the author of the JOSEPHINE B. TRILOGY, the internationally best-selling novels based on the life of Josephine Bonaparte, Napoleon's wife. The Trilogy has been published in 17 countries.
The Trilogy was followed by MISTRESS OF THE SUN and then THE SHADOW QUEEN, a "sister" novel. Both novels are set in the Court of Louis XIV, the Sun King.

An American-Canadian, I was born in Miami, Florida, and lived in Rio de Janeiro, Berkeley and Chicago before immigrating to Canada in 1970 to teach in an Inuit village in northern Labrador. (Note: my birthday above is fictitious for security reasons, but I'm not coy about my age; I was born in 1944.)
Settling in Toronto, I worked as a book editor for a decade before moving with my husband and two children to a log house in northern Ontario, where, in 1985, I began writing full-time.
Our two children grown, my husband and I now live half the year in Ontario, and half in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
