KIRKUS REVIEW

A fictional return to the love affair between Adrienne LeCouvreur, the 18th century actress who was the idol of the French public for close to twenty years, and Maurice Saxe, one of the greatest generals of his time, which does this romance up in the style the period and invests it with a sentimental abandon. For Adrienne, who knew that de , the natural but acknowledged son of the King of Poland, was restless, reckless by ture, delayed in submitting to her love for him- if only for a time. Trusting, forebearing, forgiving, as the years bring many infidelities, many absences, Adrienne knows no ssening of her love for him, dies-perhaps of heartbreak- perhaps from the poisoned llets of a jealous rival- in his arms...A romantic revival which may stir if it does cloy.
