When the Armistice between France and England came to an end in 1803, Napoleon jailed 10,000 British tourists who were in France at the time. Most had committed no crime and had simply been travelling when captured.To avoid being arrested, many went into hiding, among them the widow and daughter of Sir Edward Waltham, who had died that winter. Plunged into poverty and the seedier side of Paris life, beautiful Vernita Waltham is keeping her sick mother precariously alive on the money she obtains from making exquisitely embroidered lingerie for Napoleon’s sister, Her Imperial Highness Princess Pauline Borghese.
