Hello, My Name is Nieves... and I'm a Cover Lover...

Part Deux...

On this week's edition of dust jackets I love...

The Emperor's Body, by Peter Brooks, W.W. Norton, 23.95.

So I have a slight obsession with Napoleon and France during the fin de si├Ęcle, and ensuing 50 years. You could call it a complex, but it's much simpler than that. Really any good historical fiction does the trick. Brooks' plot line of three lovers involved with the moving of Napoleon's body from Saint Helena after his death opens their worlds to political passions and intrigue.

The cover promises this and much much more!
