Elisabeth, Empress of Austria : a Novel
Elisabeth, Empress of Austria and Hungary, was the acknowledged beauty of her society. At 17, she married the Emperor Franz Joseph. He adored her. Her subjects loved her and she was deeply loved by several men. But Elisabeth was a troubled woman, a free spirit trapped in a repressive society, a woman ahead of, and out of step, with her time. Living in a shallow and jealous court society, greedy for position and power, Elisabeth's strength of character, her determination, her skill as a horsewoman and love of travel allowed her to endure her life and gave her freedom from her domineering mother-in-law.
