The Angelique series of books by French husband and wife writing team Sergeanne Golon. Set during the 17thCentury and the reign of Louis XIV, the books follow the eventful life of an impoverished French nobleman's daughter Angelique. These books transported me in my early teens to a wonderful world full of history and adventure. I devoured each one. I am the proud owner of an original old Pan edition of this the first book. STOP PRESS: All the Angelique books are set to be republished!!! WooHoo!
