KIRKUS REVIEW

Madame Letizia Bonaparte, the mother of Napoleon, was fully worthy of her famous son, and happily, this biography is worthy of her. Mis Stirling's book is a pleasant addition to Napoleonic lore; her view of Napoleon and of his mother is almost entirely sympathetic, yet she manages to avoid the pitfalls of panegyric and presents her characters as vivid human beings. For the history or biography addicts.
