Will do! It cost a bit more then I wanted to spend but it sounded the most interesting of the books about him.

Well fook! The book on "St. Paul's" I was so happy to find cheap seems to have gone MIA. The seller emailed looking for feedback, and I replied it hadn't arrived yet and they checked the tracking number and indeed no movement has happened since the number was activated on Dec 30! I'll get a refund, but that was the cheapest one of it's kind!

Sad sigh :(

I picked up a used copy of Napoleon and Josephine: An Improbable Marriage by Evangeline Bruce. I was so enthralled by Sandra Gullard's Josephine B series, I wanted to learn more. Anyone read this one?
