Formats & editions


A magical illustrated book - a 'visual novel' - by the bestselling author of THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE and THE THREE INCESTUOUS SISTERS.

The follow-up to the lyrical, haunting novel-in-pictures THE THREE INCESTUOUS SISTERS, THE ADVENTURESS tells a new tale of love, loss and redemption. When an alchemist's daughter is kidnapped, she escapes into the arms of a man named Napoleon Bonaparte. Together the Adventuress and Napoleon share a passionate romance which has tragic, yet transcendent, results. Niffenegger's stunning, lavish prints again depict a timeless, evocative tale and showcase her unique talent as an artist and writer.
