    Josephine PDF/EPUB µ Hardcover josephine ebok, Josephine ePUBI enjoyed learning about Josephine Napoleon as well as the history of France during that period Before reading this I really didn’t know much about Josephine at all other than the fact that she was born in Martinique not that far from where we live Our local museum claims to have her bathtub but I have my doubts as to whether that tub was really hers Josephine was a survivor Her first marriage was simply dreadful Her marriage to Napoleon was doomed most especially when she was unable to bear his child Mind you I would think that any marriage to either of them would likely be doomed Oftentimes this book got far detailed than I would have liked I can’t say that I loved it or would recommend it I most enjoyed

    Josephine PDF/EPUB µ Hardcover josephine ebok, Josephine ePUBThough it was readable I'm glad I picked it up used Williams seems to be churning out popular biographies by the cartload which might explain a sort of blithe disregard for truth There were plenty of solid statistics but those can be got from any of a number of secondary sources some of which appear on the bibliography for this I'd hoped to find about Josephine's remarkable ability to take Emma Hamilton's revolutionary change in women's fashion and social intercourse and make it not only elegant but the leading look for all Europe but it wasn't about thatIn the acknowledgements Williams talks about the many hours she sp

    Josephine PDF/EPUB µ Hardcover josephine ebok, Josephine ePUBThis was the first time ever that I listened to an audiobook It came handy in my pre Christmas cooking frenzy I like the novelty of an audiobookI can listen to it while cooking or ironingThis book about Josephine Bonaparte was fascinating Somehow I never knew much about Bonaparte or her For a Philistine like me fiction always works better for my history educationI was surprised by a lot of things About Bonaparte how he almost became a novelist his intelligence his insecurities and total pragmatic and amoral valuesHe is no

    Josephine PDF/EPUB µ Hardcover josephine ebok, Josephine ePUBI can’t remember ever approaching a historical biography knowing less about the subject In fact what I knew about Josephine could fit comfortably on the back of a postcard and would include the immortal lines ’Not tonight Josephine’ This meant Josephine the new book from Kate Williams historian and award winning author of England’s Mistress a biography of Emma Hamilton was a revelation with every pageArriving in pre revolutionary France from Martinique the young Josephine was almost illiterate and her front teeth were black from her father’s sugar cane plantation This book t
