Summary
The daughter of a high-class courtesan, Sarah Bernhardt's mother pulled her out of convent school to set her up as a sexual companion to a rich elderly gentleman. Sarah is pregnant and unmarried at sixteen, expected to give up her baby to the nuns, but she refuses to let him go. A natural talent and darkly beautiful, her innovative acting style attracts both admiration and scorn. Amazingly, she is hired by the famed Comédie Française -- only to have her life torn asunder in the savagery of the 1870 Siege of Paris. Amidst the ruins of the city, Sarah nurses wounded soldiers before returning to the Comédie and becoming world famous
