Meeting with Sibylle
I met this morning with Sibylle, of Sibylle’s Kitchen Sink, and she already posted on it!
She asked questions about characters that no one else seemed to have much noticed, like Rosalie, the Countess de Provence’s Black maid, and Martial, the “workman” who befriends Gabrielle during the September massacres in 1792.
It was perfect timing for Rosalie, because I had been working on the post below on General Dumas and reflecting on the issue of Bonaparte and slavery.
We continued our discussion during a stroll in the beautiful gardens of the Luxembourg Palace, which also happens to be one of my heroine Gabrielle’s favorite haunts in Paris. Thank you for a lovely time, Sibylle!
