"The rich tapestry of this trilogy is not to be missed." —The Historical Novels Review

THE JOSEPHINE B. TRILOGY comprises three acclaimed, best-selling novels that draw the reader into the delicate yet passionate relationship between Josephine and Napoleon Bonaparte: THE MANY LIVES & SECRET SORROWS OF JOSEPHINE B.; TALES OF PASSION, TALES OF WOE; THE LAST GREAT DANCE ON EARTH. Together in this omnibus edition, they form an irresistible epic, tracing Josephine’s transformation from impressionable young girl to canny and compassionate wife, to confidante empress and one of the most sophisticated and powerful women in history.

Adored by readers of all ages, the Josephine novels are a sweeping tale of love and loss, political intrigue and revolution during one of the most tumultuous periods in European history.

THE MANY LIVES & SECRET SORROWS OF JOSEPHINE B. traces Josephine's early years as she leaves the exotic, lush, and remote Martinique for the heart of European society. There she meets Napoleon, whose destiny will prove to be irrevocably intertwined with hers. 


*Named one of the top ten historical novels of the year by BBC History Magazine

TALES OF PASSION, TALES OF WOE continues the saga as Josephine awakens to her new life as Mrs. Napoleon Bonaparte and we witness the political intrigues and personal betrayals that result in death, ruin, and victory for those closest to Josephine.

*24 five-star reviews on

*"That rare phenomenon: a second novel even better than the first." — The Toronto Star

THE LAST GREAT DANCE ON EARTH is the triumphant final volume that opens four years into the passionate yet troubled union of Josephine and Napoleon. The tumultuous times will, ultimately, drive them apart, culminating in Josephine's greatest tragedy: her divorce from Napoleon and his exile to Elba. 

*"Riveting! Never has this near-mythic figure seemed more human." — Robin Maxwell, author of The Secret Diary Of Anne Boleyn
