Author Diane Scott Lewisabout this book: Elysium, where the gods are sent to die. On the remote island of St. Helena, Napoleon curses his exile. Will a beautiful young servant woman help him escape? I wrote this novel intrigued by Napoleon's last days, and if it were possible, could he have escaped? I did years of research at the Library of Congress, reading diaries of the people who accompanied him into exile; even an old French book that claimed he had escaped captivity.

For all the vitriol written about this man, I found another side of him. Readers will be shocked to learn he was a human being with the same foibles and tender feelings as the rest of us.

Explore Napoleon's last struggles with the British and his possible poisoning by a comrade. Also explore the unique, exotic island of St. Helena, whose flora and fauna can't be found anywhere else on Earth.

Elysium is a vivid interpretation of Napoleon's notorious exile, with a fictional heroine and a surprise ending.
