    PDF/EPUB Diane Haeger Ó Ó Courtesan MOBI ï courtesan kindle, Courtesan PDF/EPUBI am a historical fiction junkie I particularly enjoy novels set in the Medieval and Rennaissance period I have always been fascinated by Diane de Poitiers and made sure to visit Chenonceaux when I was in France Thus I was very excited to come across this novel This novel does a great job painting a picture of court life particularly of the debauchery during the raine of Francois I Diane Haeyer's characterization of Anne d'Heilly Duchesse d'Etampes seems ui

    PDF/EPUB Diane Haeger Ó Ó Courtesan MOBI ï courtesan kindle, Courtesan PDF/EPUBcomme je te manue comme je t'adoreBeautifully written although I skipped the last 20 pages just to finish the book not a grand ending but well I did know the ending that's the charm of historical novels I would describe Henri Diane's love as codependency D I read somewhere that such a love is the result of modern life as of the last 2000 years and not the prehistoric era it's the lack of love and support from family and the society that drives people to call someone their own like an obsession because that can help filling the void which we can see how Henri had soooo many daddy issues I was wondering about the amount of wine they were consuming water was rare D Although I read somewhere that in those days water was mostly dirty and not good so people would drink ale or wine instead I know I can't write a decent review There are other reviews t

    PDF/EPUB Diane Haeger Ó Ó Courtesan MOBI ï courtesan kindle, Courtesan PDF/EPUBRating Grade 2 stars C Disclaimer I am not a professional reviewer nor was I solicited for this review I purchased my copy of Courtesan at Sony ebook store I read the entire novel at least 1 time prior to reviewing itSpoiler warning I try to mark spoilers but I don't always remember to do that Courtesan missed the boat on so many levels The love story of Henri de Valois and Diane de Poitiers is pure fodder for a great cougar romance I've always been curious about who Diane de Poitiers may have been how she functionned in the French Court and how she survived Catherine de Medici's jealousy Unfortunately this historical novel didn't engage me as well as it could have due to the author's chronic effort to consistently portray Diane de Poitiers only in the

    PDF/EPUB Diane Haeger Ó Ó Courtesan MOBI ï courtesan kindle, Courtesan PDF/EPUBI haven't read a lot of historical fiction mainly because the few books that I have read haven't really hit me where I want a book to hit me Let me tell you this book completely hit me I wish that I would have had these sorts of books around when I was in high school for my history classes because they would have made a huge difference in the way I felt about history Then I felt history was a wasted subject It was in the past move forward etc But now maybe because I'm older I find it extremely important and interesting but this book brought it into a whole new light for me I love Lo

    PDF/EPUB Diane Haeger Ó Ó Courtesan MOBI ï courtesan kindle, Courtesan PDF/EPUBI've always known of the love story between Henri and Diane and I was happy to pick up a fictional tale of it I love how it stayed true to history and how well it flowed through the tumultuous years between the couple doomed by all to fail The author paints a beautiful picture of the French court and its characters The little details she incorporates really bring the story to life especially when she describes the clothes the rooms furnit

    PDF/EPUB Diane Haeger Ó Ó Courtesan MOBI ï courtesan kindle, Courtesan PDF/EPUBHaeger's writing style in Courtesan seemed a bit antiuated but it worked for the story The novel read like it had an omniscient point of view but in reality it was mostly head hopping Since this book was first published in 1993 and at the time head hopping was fairly common in novels I'd say no harm no foul Haeger's wri

    PDF/EPUB Diane Haeger Ó Ó Courtesan MOBI ï courtesan kindle, Courtesan PDF/EPUB3 stars is a generous rating for this book I really considered giving it a 2The Courtesan is about the lives of Henri II of France and his favourite Diane de Poiters I found the depiction of the characters to be very one dimensional and clicheThe predictability was practically tragic Historical Fiction than any other genre imo depends on the finesse of the author The reader KNOWS what's going to happen It's history The author has to write it so that the reader doesn't think to themself well duh after every event They have to give us motivations that we may not have thought of relationships we wouldn't have guessed mattered dialogue that changes how we view what happened Haeger didn't do that She was lazy Eve
