No rags to riches story can compare with that of Napoleon and Josephine,two outsiders who rose to become Emperor and Empress of the French Republic. Evangeline Bruce's joint biography embraces the lives not only of her two central figures,but of all the vital personalities of the Revolutionary era.
Evangeline Bruce brought out some interesting tidbits on Napoleon and Josephine. One example: the young and slender General Bonaparte, a newlywed, boldly kisses and fondles his wife while in the presence of his generals. On one such occasion during a meeting, Napoleon's open affections with Josephine forced one of his generals to move over to the window to give the couple some time alone. The "Epilogue" at the end of the book gives detailed information on what later became of indivduals such as Theresia Tallien, Barras, Napoleon's first love Desiree, and others

Napoleon and Josephine. An Improbable Marriage. In her first book, historian Bruce reconstructs the lives, courtship and marriage of Napoleon and Josephine with a wealth of details. In 1796, the luxury-loving Josephine, born to an aristocratic family and widowed as a result of the French Revolution, accepted the awkward, newly renowned Napoleon with reluctance. Initially "an improbable marriage,'' it evolved into a reflection of French society under the Empire, characterized by unbridled ambition, reckless politics, hypocrisy, and sycophancy.
