Publisher's summary

After the defeated Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte goes into exile on tiny St. Helena Island in the remote South Atlantic, he and his lover, Albine de Montholon, plot to escape and rescue his young son. Banding together African slaves, British sympathizers, a Jewish merchant, a Corsican rogue, and French followers, they confront British opposition as well as treachery within their own ranks with sometimes subtle, sometimes bold, but always desperate action. When Napoleon and Albine break faith with one another, ambition and Albine’s husband threaten their reconciliation. To survive, Albine must decide whom to betray. To succeed, Napoleon must learn whom to trust. With its delightful adaptation of Napoleon’s real attempt to write a novel, Finding Napoleon offers a fresh take on Europe’s most powerful man after he’s lost everything. A forgotten woman of history, the audacious Albine de Montholon narrates their tale of intrigue, love, and betrayal.

First book on Napoleon

At times early in book were hard to follow but later it all falls in place. Enjoyed story line and a peek in to Napoleon's life and times. Very descriptive could feel the breeze on the island. Excellent voice actors.

Beautifully, Vividly, and Expertly Written

This feels authentic, like a historical document rediscovered rather than a novel constructed by a 21st-century author. Truly a treat for lovers of historical fiction. Napoleon's escape plots were exciting, and I appreciated the inclusion of St. Helena's enslaved population. I also loved the detailed Author's Note. The audiobook narrators did a wonderful job as well. Their French pronunciations were spot-on. Magnifique!
