My Daughter, My Sister-In-Law....

Post by SonjaMarie » Fri February 4th, 2011, 6:45 pm

My daughter, my sister-in-law. She's my daughter and my sister-in-law!

Sorry was having a "Chinatown Moment" there! It was sparked off when I was reading "Seven Ages of Paris" and Josephine Bonaparte was being quoted as telling her sister-in-law Hortense something. Sister-in-law?! Well ok technically it's true, since Hortense was married to Louis Bonaparte, Napoleon's brother, but she was first and foremost Josephine's daughter from her first marriage! It was just very odd for the writer to refer to her as her sister-in-law.

I saw that too! Think it's an error on his part.
