Really fascinating insight into the court of Louis XIV.

Excellent 'creative nonfiction' story of the life of Françoise d'Aubigné, Marquise de Maintenon, unacknowledged wife of Louis XIV. Written in 1st-person, the colorful novel is inspired by more than four thousand letters written by Mme. Maintenon. Excellent and often fascinating introduction to the period and life in the French Court under the "Sun King" at Versailles.
