Desiree: The Bestselling Novel of Napoleon's First Love based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I must say that this novel [ based on historical fact ] is top notch! The best thing about it [IMO] It tells the story of Desiree Clary during a tumultuous time in European history. The author paints an unflattering picture of Napoleon of him and his actions as First Counsel and eventually Emperor of the French are seen through the eyes of Desiree. Another great thing about this novel is the fact that there is absolutely no sexual action or innuendoes throughout the whole story. Quite refreshing that. The closest it comes to anything intimate [other than in the reader's imagination] is the mention of undergarments or underclothes. If I were a teacher in middle school or high school I would definitely urge students to read this wonderful novel of a very feisty and admirable main character!
