Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary
Volume Two of Madame de Boignes memoirs reveals a,woman of startling contradiction. She claimed to,be heartbroken when her wealthy older husband,died, but she had only married him to save her,family from financial ruin, and after his death,embarked on a thirty-year love affair. She also,admired England, but hated its customs. A staunch,Royalist, she respected Napoleon and was appalled,by the rigidity of the last two Bourbon kings. She,called her own memoirs the tales of an old womana bit of tapestry that shall be bequeathed to my,heirs as if it were one more armchair.
