    EBOOK ´ EPUB Stealing Sisis Star ä Paperback Stealing Sisis StarA young naive bride and an overbearing and critical mother in law is a recipe for disaster Add in the fact that the young bride is marrying the future Austrian Emporer The author Jennifer Bowers Bahney skillfully tells the story of Elizabeth AKA Sisi Empress of Austria Did the Monster in law lead Sisi to strange almost insane behavior?

    EBOOK ´ EPUB Stealing Sisis Star ä Paperback Stealing Sisis StarFull disclosure I'm friends with the author But that would not color my appreciation of this book The research and construction that went into this book is excellent Bahney makes the intersection of the history of the Hapsburgs and the theft of the famous jewel fun If I had one criticism it's that a cast of characters would have been helpful in keeping all the Hapsburgs straight There are a lot of family members with same or similar names that was a bit confusing Bahney has a second book out that is the story of Sisi's daughter's role during WWII that sounds really good
