A story of Waterloo and of the man Napoleon, suffering, eary, rousing to victory as to wine, and stirring a young soldier to youth's glory of hero worship. A clear heroic note, and a love story with all the charm of "the American Dumas."
When Deborah Swift isn't working on her latest novel, she enjoys exploring the English countryside. It was during one of her nature walks that an "orchid guard" inspired her to write her novel, The Lady's Slipper. As our author of the day, Swift reveals why she was inspired, why she picked the 1660s as a backdrop for her book and what the orchid symbolizes.
