extract :

Les belles de la Révolution : (the Beauties of the Revolution)
What were all these « unknown beauties » doing during the Revolution that Juliette Benzoni tells us in this very beautiful collection? They loved, always, trembling, sometimes, conspired, often, or died.

...Juliette Benzoni painted a gallery of fascinating heroines at the time of the Revolution with courage and elegance, despite the many surprises that fate had in store for them.
