THE PRINCESS OF NOWHERE
PRINCE LORENZO BORGHESE
Rating: 4 Cups
Pauline Bonaparte was Napoleon's sister and once hailed as one of the most beautiful women in Europe. Pauline was widowed with a young son when she married the Italian Prince Camillo Borghese. Their romance was one of love, jealousy, affairs and indiscretions.
Pauline soon finds herself wanting more attention than her husband can give, and a surrogate mother to Sophie, a cousin through marriage as well as her son. She vies for attention from any man willing to look in her direction.
The Royal marriage has its strains, which result in a separation of parties for years, that is until Pauline’s life is fading fast before her eyes and she wishes to be forgiven by those she has done wrong and to enjoy the last of her days.
I found this book to be very interesting even though I had never heard of Pauline. I love the fact that the author is a relative of Pauline’s. The touch of fiction paired with family history is so entertaining. Although their story does not have a happy ending you can truly feel the love that Pauline and Camillo had for each other. If you are looking for something off the beaten path to read then you might want to take a shot at The Princess of Nowhere.
