Read in June, 1971

Desiree dates Napoleon, but ends up with his General Bernadotte, who eventually
sides with Sweden against Napoleon. You know, the life of about every girl.

In High School I adored this older! girl who was about 20 and she liked Napoleon
so I read this book, which yes, is more on the chick book side of things but a lot
of history also. To this day I know the Swedish royal lineage with the Bernadottes.
