Mailbox Monday (41)

It's time for Mailbox Monday, a weekly fun meme created by Marcia at The Printed Page. It has now gone on tour and for the month of September will be hosted by Kathy at Bermudaonion's Weblog. (If you want to join in on the fun, just click and see what others have received in their mailboxes.) I got one beautiful book last week.

Désirée: The Bestselling Story of Napoleon's First Love by Annemarie Selinko (from Sourcebooks)

Amazon product description:
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.

So what did you get in your mailbox last week?
