MADELEINE is a novel of great historical accuracy, dramatic power and wide scope. No reader will be able to forget the face of Ismail Pasha in his silken pavilion in the desert as he confronts de Lesseps and Bruce. The magnificent Ball at the Tuileries moves with the ceremonial of the Second Empire and glows with the color and texture of the dresses designed by Worth but behind its brilliant assurance are the premonitions of revolution and military disaster to France. That Sunday afternoon of secret fever at the Prussian Court, from which spread the ever-widening ripples of ill to Europe, is as vivid as a day in one's own life. The French cavalry swing with the old Napoleonic elan into the very mouths of the new cannon from Krupps. Only the indomitable spirit of the Parisians sustains the bloody sorties from beleaguered Paris. And Madeleine is the incarnation of that heroic spirit.
