About this title


A fictionalized account of the life of Germaine De Stael, this is the story of how this remarkable woman - motivated by uncompromising principles and fortified by her wealth - helped to bring down an unbridled tyrant and alter the course of history in France and the rest of the world.

About the Author:

Victoria D. Schmidt was an advertising and public relations executive, founding and operating her own communcations firm in New Jersey before serving as that state's Director of Travel and Tourism during the 1980's. After graduating from Douglass College as an English and French major, she traveled throughout France and other European countries, taking the roads traversed by Germaine de Stael, who engaged her interest during French literature courses. Schmidt spent more than twenty years researching her subject, visiting residences of Madame de Stael, attending colloquia of the Societe Staelienne, and interviewing both descendants and scholars of de Stael. The result is "Triumph in Exile."
