    Baltimore's Bonaparte

    This review is from: Wondrous Beauty: The Life and Adventures of Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte (Hardcover)
    I love memoirs and biographraphies of significant American women - of which Carol Berkin is a venerable expert. Her previous works include "Revolutionary Mothers" and "Civil War Wives." With a name like Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte, I knew this woman would be more than just a relation of Napoleon. When I saw this book at the airport I was intrigued to learn what made "Betsy" such a celebrity.

    There are several aspects of this book that resonated with me. Berkin's treatment of revealing Betsy's character honors her strengths and weaknesses as a diplomat, businesswoman, and "wondrous beauty." To build on who she was, I found her significant relationships with men, from her father, son, and of course Napoleon's younger brother fascinatng. Its crazy to think that the conflict between France and Britain would sour her marriage to Prince Jerome Bonaparte so.

    This is a great quick read that illuminates American history that I highly suggest!
