'You will be unhappily wed. You will be widowed. You will be Queen.' To fourteen-year-old Rose, eldest daughter of a poor plantation landlord, the fortune teller's prophecy is both thrilling and laughable. Poorly educated and without a dowry, it seems unlikely she will find any husband, much less a king. But history tells a different tale. In this beautifully crafted novel, Sandra Gulland pulls back the veil of history to reveal the extraordinary life of the woman who will one day be known as Josephine Bonaparte, wife of the emperor who will rule all France.
