              'Stephanie Parkyn is one very talented storyteller!' -Mrs B's Book Reviews 'Highly recommended.' -Good Reading on Into the World From the author of Into the World comes another beautifully complex, richly imagined historical novel. She survived the most terrible prison in Paris, ...but would she survive her marriage to Napoleon? France, 1794. In the aftermath of the bloody end to the French Revolution, Rose de Beauharnais stumbles from prison on the day she was to be guillotined. Within a decade, she'll transform into the scandalous socialite who marries Napoleon Bonaparte, become Empress Josephine of France and build a garden of wonders with plants and animals she gathers from across the globe. But she must give Bonaparte an heir or she risks losing everything. The lives of two other women from very different social spheres are tied to the fate of the Empress Josephine. Marthes Desfriches has been widowed twice and is desperate to have a child when she enters a loveless marriage with an adversary of the Empress who despises her botanical ambitions. Anne Serreaux longs for a large family when she marries the man who becomes chief gardener for the Empress tasked with germinating the first Tasmanian blue gums in Europe. Each of these women faces obstacles in their relationships and in their quest to become mothers - experiencing trauma that will put all their lives at risk. Josephine's Garden is about identity, obsession, love and marriage, and, ultimately, finding the courage to let go.
