This "true" story of Juana and Henry Smith seems unbelievable. But truth is stranger than fiction. I've read a great deal of General Smith's biography and though Heyer certainy took liberties, the worst that can be said is that she toned down his (and other men's) adoration of his wife. This tale is singular in that in our cynical age it gives voice to a very real voice of love and adoration in an age we almost believe to be a myth. Yes, it is battle heavy and if you have no interest in the Napoleanic Wars, you may become bored. But if you want to learn a great deal of the history of the period in an entertaining way, you can look to no better source. The scene at Waterloo is unforgettable.
