Product description...

Set against the turbulent years of 19th Century India, Europe, and America, these are the true adventures of the beautiful and cunning Irish Marie Gilbert and her struggle from a complicated past which compels her to change her identity and plunges her into an unexpected series of dangerous events which bring forth dramatic results. Her desperate escape from pursuing Prussian soldiers in Poland who have orders to shoot her on sight. Her emergence as an exotic dancer into a dazzling vision of Paris during the turbulent reign of Louis Philippe and the tragic duel in the Bois. She enters Bavaria, becomes King Ludwig’s obsession, assumes command of the country, creates a sort of democracy in a monarchy which results in a devastating revolt that topples the king and forces her to flee for her life. Finally, she arrives into the gold mad city of San Francisco which swirls and roars around her in an exaggerated frenzy, so different from the splendors of Europe.
