. . . and you were probably just thinking that what this story needed was a bit of teen romance. (After all, how else are we supposed to wean the younger generation off Hilary Duff movies and onto serious literature?)
So, in this chapter, we discover that not only have Sonya and Nikolay got a thing for each other, but Natasha and Boris do as well . . . (which I’ve designated with cute pink lines on the MindMap)
For the girls reading it . . . enjoy. For the guys . . . I promise, there are some muskets and cannons in this book a bit further down the track . . . promise. You might even meet Napoleon.
