    You can?t go wrong with authors like these on the cover. The writing is so eloquent and discriptive I can feel like I?m really there. Various points of view of the same situation is truly fascinating to read. ...

    Find this and other reviews at: https://historicalfictionreader.blogs... Ribbons of Scarlet is the fifth collaborative from the History 360 Co-Op but in many ways, it is entirely unlike its predecessors. For one, Ribbons of Scarlet is the first release to be traditionally published ...

    Honored to have provided a quote for this wonderful collaborative novel: ?Seamlessly interwoven by a dream team of historical authors, Ribbons of Scarlet vividly transported me to the tumultuous days of the French Revolution; I could feel the cobblestones of the alleys, taste the...

    I really enjoyed this book. Love Kate Quinn, so when I won a copy from Goodreads, it was meant to be! With a different author writing each chapter, I wondered how the book would hold together. But each chapter is told from a different woman's point of view. So you see the characters ap...

    Ten years of the French Revolution told through the eyes, hearts and minds of women. Each one with different yet very similar circumstances throughout the years of revolt, blood shed, and terror. There is so much about this event that is unknown to me. I found each character (each w...

    Rating 4.5, would have been 6 if one chapter completely failed to hold my interest. Different women written by different authors yet held together very well! A good story of the French Revolution and how it continued to change. ...

    I received a free Advanced Reader Edition of RIBBONS OF SCARLET at the Historical Novel Society conference so this a legitimate prerelease review. The book is unique in that six authors collaborated on it. Each wrote a section told from the point of view of a different female historica...

    Being transported to the turbulent time during the French Revolution has me admiring the bravery and strength of the women who took the risk of trying to make a difference in a male dominated era. The stories by these authors were woven well throughout the book. I learned a lot about t...

    I got this book as an ARC at a library conference. I love stories that center women and I?m fascinated by stories of the French Revolution, so I really wanted to love this book. In the end, though, it was just okay to me. I think it tries to do too much. Each chapter doesn?t really...

    The French Revolutionary years were among the most complex historical periods of all time. The Revolution?s proponents fought for differing ideologies and ever-changing goals. Alliances were forged then broken as new factions appeared overnight. Yesterday?s leaders were themselves ...

    I was so excited to win this in a Goodreads giveaway! This book has 6 authors who each wrote a different part of this story which is told from the viewpoints of 7 different women (Part 5 has 2 main characters) during the French Revolution. When I started reading it I didn't realize tha...

    Ribbons of Scarlet is a masterful work. I have not read a novel composed by six separate authors. The narrative flowed smoothly from one chapter, one woman's perspective, to the next. THe authors captured the fear, mayhem, passion, and inconsistency of the French Revolution very well. ...

    Collaboration of six talented female writers brings an epic story about historical female figures, who came from different backgrounds, but had one common goal to give women a voice. They were passionate about politics, which wasn?t a place for women to be meddling in. But they did. ...

    A unique book of the French Revolution. This book is written by 6 amazing historical fiction authors but it reads as if written by 1. Each author writes of a real woman from the French Revolution. I read this book quickly as I couldn't put it down. I loved the stories of these strong c...

    I won an ARC through a contest and I was so excited! The French Revolution is such a horrific and fascinating time period. The exciting part of this book is that it is a collaboration of several authors and the focus is on the women that affected change. I've heard the names of Marie A...

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I am in awe of this multi-faceted creation by some of the biggest names in historical fiction. Each chapter of this novel is written by a different author, but you'd never know it. The text comes together in the ...

    Thanks to HarperCollins for the ARC at BEA 2019! This historical fiction novel about the women of the French Revolution was really interesting on multiple levels. One, we just generally never talk about women in history. Two, while I had my worries about a book about the French Revo...
