I personaly wish we would know more about the happy years of Angelique and Joffrey in Toulouse.

I still hope there will be some retrospective in the last books Kingdom of France.

In the old books are many lovelymoments, where I wish, AG did tell as more about ;) :D

For example, I would like to know more about the night Comte Joffrey de Peyrac spent a romantic nigt with Angelique, watching stars and sleeping together in big oriental open-air tent, which he brought from Syria. I bet it was a very romantic night, although comte de Peyrac was a bit worried.
Maybe did Joffrey, that night, tell Angelique some lovely stories and fairytales from his travels.....

here a excerpt from the book:

Summer 1657, Languedoc, Black Mountains, province Aude, near to Salsigne……..

Peyrac left the dwelling-houses to Bernalli, Friar Becher and to d’Andijos, who, naturally, was one of the party. He himself preferred the shelter of a vast, double-roofed tent which he had brought back from Syria.
„I think I inherited the camping habit from the crusaders. In this heat and in these parts, which are the driest in France, you will see, Angelique, that we’ll be far more comfortable than in a stone-and mud construction. “
When evening came, she did indeed savour the cool air that came down from the mountains. The lifted flaps of the tent revealed a sky reddened by the setting sun; from the banks of the torrent could be heard the sad solemn songs of the Saxon miners.
Joffrey de Peyrac seemed worried. (…) he fell silent and, pulling his wife towards him, he said to her something that she was to understand only much later:
“I have also chosen you as a witness”………


This excerpt is from the Heinemann book published in England in 1959, translation by Rita Barisse
