Product Details


"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
