Book 4: Angélique and the Sultan {otherwise known as Angélique in Barbary} (1960)

The Indomitable Angélique (1960)
ANGÉLIQUE AND THE SULTAN / ANGÉLIQUE IN BARBARY
Again spatially divided into two main parts. The book begins in a situation when Angélique leaves the Court and sets out to the Mediterranean to search for her first husband, who is perhaps alive. For this, it will help her a property of the office of consul in Candia and also the meeting with Monsieur de Vivonne, an organizer of the Versailles festivities and an Admiral of royal galleys. We can know a historical atmosphere of the island Malta – the seat of the Order of the Knights of Malta; an atmosphere of Crete, of the Greek Islands dotted with the ancient monuments including the life of the local population; but also an atmosphere of all the dangers which the pirates symbolized primarily. They trade with everything including people. And just to them, Angélique is getting into their hands and she is sold as a popular assortment of white slave woman in the market in Candia. But Angélique escapes from her buyer and after the fall into an another trap, she is sold into the harem of the Sultan of Morocco. The rediscovered survival instinct compels Angélique to resist the Sultan, however, she is understanding with the interesting personality of his black eunuch, an astrologer and scientist, Osman Faraji. The story is an opportunity for a look into the life of the Orientals in the 17th century, when the Cross with the Crescent moon are constantly fighting.
