555pp, illus. VG in dj. 'A fascinating portrayal of two extraordinary personalities, Evangeline Bruce's vivid narrative combines broad and insightful historical knowledge with the novelist's eye for detail and drama. As biography, Bruce beautifully places her subjects in the finely textured social and political world of late eighteenth- century France and makes this improbable marriage come alive as a passionate love affair and as a European event.'--Fred Kaplan, author of CHARLES DICKENS. I add my own highest personal recommendation.
