    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, Desiree explores the landscape of a young heart torn in two.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Désirée: The Bestselling Story of Napoleon's First Love to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version of this book, however I must say that this has been the most enjoyable audio book I have ever listened to.


    Which character – as performed by Nicole Quinn – was your favorite?

    Nicole Quinn does an excellent job of all of the performances, it was funny and emotional and she is so excellent at the different voices, you never had to guess who was speaking.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book to men and women.

    Story

    London, 1940: Winston Churchill has just been sworn in, war rages across the Channel, and the threat of a Blitz looms larger by the day. But none of this deters Maggie Hope. She graduated at the top of her college class and possesses all the skills of the finest minds in British intelligence, but her gender qualifies her only to be the newest typist at No. 10 Downing Street. Her indefatigable spirit and gifts for codebreaking, though, rival those of even the highest men in government, and Maggie finds that working for the prime minister affords her a level of clearance she could never have imagined....

    Katherine says: "Lovely"
    "GREAT BOOK!"

    If you could sum up Mr. Churchill's Secretary in three words, what would they be?

    Very entertaining reading


    Any additional comments?

    It was one of the shorter books I have listened to, but thoroughly enjoyed it.
