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.

Watch the movie with Jean Simmons. It's just as good and just as loved. Would recommend to others as well.
