This third installment of the relationship between Josephine and Napoleon Bonaparte concentrates of the waning glory years of his power and the eventual collapse of their union. The Last Great Dance on Earth from Sandra Gulland picks up where Napoleon crowns himself Emperor and makes Josephine his Empress. Through all his infidelities Josephine has come to love Napoleon and desperately wants to provide him with an heir. However, this proves to be very difficult even after radical attempts. With no apparent heir, political instability for Napoleon and the rest of Europe begins to show itself. Things deteriorate as Napoleon’s brother lusts for his power, his sister devises sinister plans to ease the jealousy she feels for Josephine and Napoleon’s own mother refuses to attend his coronation. Before long the bubble bursts and Napoleon insists on a divorce just prior to being exiled. She is left with nothing but her love for a man who cannot return it. Engrossing and fast-paced, this will appeal to more than just history buffs.
