From the Publisher"If Jane Austen had been French, she might well have invented the family Saint-Pierre.... Stylish and uniquely crafted."
— The Orlando Sentinel
"Powerful ... lovely, meticulously researched ... evokes the beginnings of the Terror in crisp, elegant, compassionate prose."
— The New York Times Book Review
"Fascinating ... Sophie's calmness and kindness, her passion for roses, her botanical studies and attempts to create a crimson flower ... are the soul and spine of the book.... De Kretser has exhaustively researched the life of the period, but she wears her knowledge lightly."
— The Washington Post Book World
