Read full description of the books Le Grand Cœur:



Dans la chaleur d'une île grecque, un homme se cache pour échapper à ses poursuivants. Il évoque sa vie hors du commun et tente de démêler l'écheveau de son destin.

Fils d'un modeste pelletier, il est devenu l'homme le plus riche de France. Il a permis à Charles VII de terminer la guerre de Cent Ans. Il a changé le regard sur l'Orient. Avec lui, l'Europe est passée du temps des croisades à celui de l'échange. Comme son palais à Bourges, château médiéval d'un côté et palais Renaissance de l'autre, c'est un être à deux faces. Aussi familier des rois et du pape que des plus humbles maisons, il a voyagé à travers tout le monde connu.

Au faîte de sa gloire, il a vécu la chute, le dénuement, la torture avant de retrouver la liberté et la fortune.
Parmi tous les attachements de sa vie, le plus bouleversant fut celui qui le lia à Agnès Sorel, la Dame de Beauté, première favorite royale de l'Histoire de France, disparue à vingt-huit ans.

Son nom est Jacques Cœur.

Il faut tout oublier de ce que l'on sait sur le Moyen Âge et plonger dans la fraîcheur de ce livre. Il a la puissance d'un roman picaresque, la précision d'une biographie et le charme mélancolique des confessions.
