Praise

"Fascinating. . . . Engaging. . . . Filled with ‘hot-blooded’ kings, royal mistressesÉand tales of cruelty, treachery and even, occasionally, heart-warming loyalty." –San Francisco Chronicle

"[Horne] is a virtuoso of the character sketch and the illuminating vignette. . . . La Belle France, with its refreshingly subjective style, possesses more treasures than a whole wall full of textbooks." –The Wall Street Journal

"A breathtaking tour of French history, from its earliest kings through the Mitterrand government. . . . There are few countries with a more fascinating history than France." –The Seattle Times
 
"A useful and charming introduction to a nation that has oh-so-definitely helped make the modern world what it is. . . . Horne does a service in helping the reader navigate the complexities of French history." –Los Angeles Times
