"All precautions are useless, Canolles; if you are killed I shall need nothing."

Supper was announced. Ten times, while they sat at table, Canolles rose and went to the window, which looked upon the river, and before the end of the repast he left the table altogether; night was beginning to fall.

Nanon would have followed him.

"Nanon," said he, "go to your room, and give me your word that you will not leave it. If I knew that you were outside, exposed to the slightest danger, I would not answer for myself. Nanon, my honor is at stake; do not trifle with my honor."

Nanon offered Canolles her carmine lips, more brilliant in hue from the pallor of her cheeks, and went to her room, saying:—

Plot twists, intrigue, characters intwined mysteriously in each other's past and current lives. I was lulled into an enjoyable read, following the political turns of war and loyalties, amazing escapes, both like-able and dastardly characters - then - Wham! - the pace took off and I couldn't expect w

Ambientato nella Francia del Seicento durante il periodo della Fronda, “La guerra delle donne” è uno dei tanti piacevoli romanzi scritti da Dumas (padre). Nanon de Lartigues e Claire de Cambes – innamorate dello stesso uomo, rivali in guerra e in amore, che combattono senza e
