Description of this Book

And so begins this lush, historical novel, a mixture of imagination and conceit, of passion and suspense. In a tense courtroom during the French Revolution, a fan-maker is on trial because of her collaboration with the Marquis de Sade. Heads will roll unless the independent fan-maker, erotically cast in the shadow of Sade, can justify her art and friendships to a court known for its rigid and prudish proprieties.
