I’m so thrilled that today the talented Heather Webb’s novel, BECOMING JOSEPHINE, releases today. This book sounds so amazing, I can’t wait to dive in. Here’s a little bit about the book and a few reviews. Check out the Holiday Guest Post Heather did for the blog, as well. There are some fun facts and yummy recipe from her novel.  I hope you’ll buy your copy of BECOMING JOSEPHINE today to help support such a wonderful writer and friend to the writing community.

Brief Synopsis:

Rose Tascher sails from her Martinique plantation to Paris, eager to enjoy an elegant life at the royal court. Once there, Rose’s aristocratic soldier-husband dashes her dreams by abandoning her amid the tumult of the French Revolution. After narrowly escaping death, Rose reinvents herself as Josephine, a beautiful socialite wooed by an awkward suitor—Napoleon Bonaparte. BECOMING JOSEPHINE is a novel of one woman’s journey to find eternal love and stability, and ultimately to find herself.

 Reviews:

“Webb’s portrayal of the range of Josephine’s experience—narrow escapes from bloodshed and disease, dinner-table diplomacy, and her helpless love for Napoleon, her children and a small dog—is exceptionally concise and colorful. A worthy fictional primer on Empress Josephine.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Webb holds up a light into the inner recesses of a fascinating and contradictory woman . . . Becoming Josephine is an accomplished debut.” -The New York Journal of Books
