KIRKUS REVIEW

Julian Braie throws up his career as a portrait painter in France under Napoleon III to go to Mexico where Carlotta and Maximilian, against their wishes, have been appointed to rule over the Mexicans. Braie stands by the Emperor when Juarez' leads a revolt against Maximilian, marries one of Juarez' adherents, and, with the downfall of the rulers, Braie and his wife escape to France. Lush descriptions of Mexico, cloak-and-sword-and-near-death formula. Can skip.
