About the book:

Six bestselling and award-winning authors bring to life a breathtaking epic novel illuminating the hopes, desires, and destinies of princesses and peasants, harlots and wives, fanatics and philosophers--six unforgettable women whose paths cross during one of the most tumultuous and transformative events in history: the French Revolution.

Ribbons of Scarlet is a timely story of the power of women to start a revolution--and change the world.

Two of them will be joining us at this event!

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author of historical fiction, LAURA KAMOIE has always been fascinated by the people, stories, and physical presence of the past, which led her to a lifetime of historical and archaeological study and training. She holds a doctoral degree in early American history from The College of William and Mary, published two non-fiction books on early America, and most recently held the position of Associate Professor of History at the U.S. Naval Academy before transitioning to a full-time career writing genre fiction. She is the author of AMERICA'S FIRST DAUGHTER and MY DEAR HAMILTON, co-authored with Stephanie Dray, allowing her the exciting opportunity to combine her love of history with her passion for storytelling. Laura lives among the colonial charm of Annapolis, Maryland with her husband and two daughters.

In Ribbons of Scarlet, Laura wrote from the perspective of Emilie de Sainte-Amaranthe Sartine, a courtesan’s daughter whose renowned beauty won her admirers and the jealousy of those she rebuffed, both of which became important to her fate--and that of the Revolution itself--during the bloody Reign of Terror.

SOPHIE PERINOT is an award-winning author of female-centered historical novels The Sister Queens and Médicis Daughter (a Goodreads Best Book of the Month). Sophie was one of six writers who authored the ground-breaking historical novel-in-six-parts, A Day of Fire: Stories of Pompeii, a group which also included current Ribbons of Scarlet collaborators, Kate Quinn, Stephanie Dray and Eliza Knight. Sophie has both a BA in history and a law degree. Crazy for history from a young age, she enjoys setting her stories against a fully-realized past while simultaneously exploring issues and feelings so essentially human that they transcend any particular era. When Sophie isn’t visiting corners of the past, she lives in Virginia with her three children, two dogs, two cats, and one husband.

In Ribbons of Scarlet, Sophie wrote from the perspective of the novel’s only Royalist—Princess Élisabeth—a woman driven by a deep faith in God and an unconditional loyalty to her doomed brother, King Louis XVI.
