As a clever girl in stodgy, mercantile Baltimore, Betsy Patterson
dreams of a marriage that will transport her to cultured Europe. When
she falls in love with and marries Jerome Bonaparte, she believes her
dream has come true—until Jerome’s older brother Napoleon becomes an
implacable enemy.


Based on a true story, The Ambitious Madame Bonaparte is a historical
novel that portrays this woman’s tumultuous life. Elizabeth Patterson
Bonaparte, known to history as Betsy Bonaparte, scandalized Washington
with her daring French fashions; visited Niagara Falls when it was an
unsettled wilderness; survived a shipwreck and run-ins with British and
French warships; dined with presidents and danced with dukes; and lived
through the 1814 Battle of Baltimore. Yet through it all, Betsy never
lost sight of her primary goal—to win recognition of her marriage.
