Author Gillian Ingall’s historical novel "Napoleon’s Glass" is based on the real-life adventures of a Frenchwoman named Adele Valentin, a brave young woman who survived the guillotine, as well as other life-and-death struggles in Europe in the early 1800s.

Amazon reviewers agree in their praise of her book:

“Adele, the leading character in this story, was one year old when her father fled to escape the guillotine. She was still young and sheltered when her mother died as they were fleeing from the Cossacks after the Russian Invasion. This is truly a story of Adele’s courage and determination to be independent and to find ways to earn a living while helping those less fortunate. It’s an inspiring history well told.”

“The remarkable courage of Lady Adele truly lifts you up and I was amazed by this strong woman.”

“Put in the framework of a series of letters from a French noblewoman, 'Napoleon’s Glass' puts a personal spin on the events of the downfall of Napoleon’s empire at the hands of the Russians, as well as other European turmoil that happened afterward.”

“Ms. Ingall describes the Chateau de Malmaison in such a way that the reader is actually walking through the rooms where Empress Josephine’s guests danced and celebrated centuries ago.”

“As I became absorbed in the story, I could not help but wonder which characters and events were imagined and which were truly historical … the author achieved such an intricate melding of the two in this page-turning historical saga.”

“By the end of her story I was emotionally spent because my heart felt everything this woman went through.”

“I love stories of women who, through adversity, become courageous … this is just such a story.”

About the Author: Gillian Ingall grew up in Sydney, Australia, and now lives with her partner on a cattle property in New South Wales. Her first novel, "The Invitation – A Tale of Greed, Adultery and Political Turmoil," was written about her experiences in China and Hong Kong during the pro-democracy movement of 1989.

“Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of this historical novel is that much of it is true. We are pleased to announce the release of this amazing story set during the French Revolution and aftermath,” said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.
