Almost alone, in her home at Chateau de Malmaison, Her Imperial Majesty Empress Joséphine, The Duchess of Navarre, awaits her fate. Divorced from the love of her life, Napoleon, she has become a curiosity; an object; a thing that nobody knows what to do with. He is in exile on the Island of Elba, plotting his return to France, whilst she clings on to the hope that he will come back to her. As her health fails, she commissions a writer to devote his time and skill to recording her story; her truth. Not a history; not a story of war and conquest, but a story of the agony and the ecstasy of her life. It is a woman’s story in a man’s world. The writer, Clicquot, has other intensions, but in the course of one unforgettable night, is transported and transformed by this enigmatic and beguiling creature.
