7. Living in Tumultuous Times: Historical Fiction - FFT
Inspired by the autobiography of a real teenage girl living in post-revolutionary France late in the 18th century, Sandra Gulland's YA novel is both timely and of another time. Hortense's beloved father was guillotined during "The Terror," her mother's new husband is Napoleon Bonaparte, destined for power, and her brother is a soldier in Napoleon's army. Sandra knows this era well. Her novels of Josephine Bonaparte and Louis XIV are international bestsellers. Then and now, political intrigue and love are timeless.
