    I've just checked this on Amazon and 25 reviews on it which are good plus it sounds good :like:

    The bestselling novel about Napoleon's first love
    One of the most successful historical romances since GONE WITH THE WIND
    Over 20 million copies sold worldwide

    To be young, in France, and in love: fourteen year old Desiree can't believe her good fortune. Her fiance, a dashing and ambitious Napoleon Bonaparte, is poised for battlefield success, and no longer will she be just a French merchant's daughter. She could not have known the twisting path her role in history would take, nearly breaking her vibrant heart but sweeping her to a life rich in passion and desire.

    A love story, but so much more, Désirée explores the landscape of a young heart torn in two, giving readers a compelling true story of an ordinary girl whose unlikely brush with history leads to a throne no one would have expected.

    An epic bestseller that has earned both critical acclaim and mass adoration, Désirée is at once a novel of the rise and fall of empires, the blush and fade of love, and the heart and soul of a woman.

    The book was excellently written. Detail was paid to the historical events of the time.

    If you don't mind me asking but what year does the story go by?...as I don't like more modern books.

    Desiree Clary lived 1777 to 1860. She met Napoleon in 1794.
