A great story about a very courageous woman of her time.
Désirée's story brought me to tears on several occasions with its raw emotion... a beautiful and triumphant piece of historical fiction.
History becomes human and touches hearts in a way only great books have the supernatural ability to do.
Fascinating, well written and brings to life a woman from history about which I knew nothing.
The story is simply captivating.
Desiree is a mesmerizing look at the rise and fall of Napoleon told from the woman who first held his heart and knew him like no other. It is touching and beautifully written and no historical fiction readers' library is complete without this exceptional, un-put-down-able novel!
This book was just enchanting.
At times, Désirée can be charming, exasperating, childlike, naive, ignorant, compassionate, and loving. In the end, I couldn't help falling under her spell... the reader can't help but be swept away along with Désirée as her life changes irrevocably.
Désirée is a classic historical fiction novel, that should be required reading for fans of the genre.
Delightfully enchanting... This is one of the best historical fiction novels I have read.
