Henrietta Jones known as  “Harry’ is outrageous and scheming, and charms everyone she meets, as she turns the world all around into chaos in 1870s Paris.

She becomes a successful criminal,  and runs away to Paris, with Joules chasing to try and protect her.

After running amok in London and Paris,  she plans a festival to save the Moulin de La Galette from development, and gets into continuous terrible trouble. Along the way she gives Paris back its smile, saves Europe from global conflict, and buys the Suez Canal.

She confronts the devious Fuickwit, the underhand Ministre, an assassin known as the Cockroach, and the President of France.  She infuriates Disraeli, advises Renoir and Zola, and inspires Charles Worth, the founder of Haute Couture.

But somehow she changes the world for the better. Everyone is thoroughly managed, with help from the long-suffering Joules, the wicked sexy, pixie-like Apoline, and the man-hating Headmistress Miss Mactavish.

Harry could almost fall in love with stupid Joules if he wasn’t so slow. Finally she is forced to kidnap him. …

The book is filled in with unusual characters.  Jowle and Finke desperately want to give up blackmail and torture to sell flowers on the Rue Rivoli. Miss Mactavish runs a school teaching girls “life skills” to win against nature’s second sex. Apoline, impossible sexy  falls in love with Lord Hawkhurst who wants to put her in prison, but would die for her,  And the Ministre is trying to destroy Montmartre for the good of France not caring if it hurts a few peasants. 

Bodies pile up around the Moulin de la Galette as Harry and Apoline are mistaken for crime lords. Criminals converge on the Moulin and everything gets out of hand.

Henrietta Jones appears to know everything and manages everyone, and in spite of the mayhem, sorts everything out.  The moulin finally becomes the ultimate romantic setting, as a statistically unlikely number of babies are conceived.

Harry, Apoline  and Anastasia Isidore Mactavish all eventually discover their destiny.

But nobody emerges unscathed from Henrietta Jones.
