14) For Bastille Day your favorite novel about or set in France
Angélique, the Marquise of the Angels (Angélique: Book 1) by Sergeanne Golon
I have read it when I was in high school. It is a book series up to 13 books in total. It is set in 18th century France. There was a movie version filmed back in the sixties.
As you can see from the pictures the film was quite luscious.
The books were International bestsellers. The topic is coming of age. The main character is best described:
Her tempestuous adventures have taken her from the gutters of Paris to the harems of Africa to the silken prison of a King. She has loved, intrigued, hated and fought her way into the hearts of millions of readers all over the world in this bestselling series of novels
And recently the series got another revamped movie in 2013.
