France’s war for independence is remembered for its guillotines, for its Reign of Terror, for “Let them eat cake” and “Off with his head.” What is forgotten is that it was a movement begun by women. During the French Revolution, women took to the streets and engaged in politics like never before. “Ribbons of Scarlet” tells the story of the tumultuous French Revolution from the female perspective. Six leading female authors of historical women’s fiction each portray one historical figure in an interwoven narrative that reads as one cohesive novel.
