Riassunto: In 1815, after the battle of Waterloo, Napoleon Bonaparte and a few loyal followers are exiled to St. Helena. On this remote, volcanic island, Amélie Perrault, the daughter of Napoleon's head chef, struggles with her low station in life and a fascination with the fallen French emperor. When her beautiful singing voice catches Napoleon's attention, she is drawn into his clash with their British jailers, court intrigues, and a burgeoning sexual attraction. Napoleon is soured on love, yet this young woman's selfless devotion tugs at his heart. After political maneuvers fail to release him from the island, he desires freedom no matter the risk-but will he desert the only woman who has loved him for himself? Elysium, in Greek mythology, is where the gods are sent to die. Amélie suspects someone in their entourage is poisoning the emperor. Will she uncover the culprit in time and join in Napoleon's last great battle plan, a dangerous escape?
