Unmarriageable, and too poor to join a convent, she enters the court of the Sun King as a maid-of-honor, where the King is captivated by her athleticism and her striking grace. As their love unfolds, Louise bears Louis four children, is made a duchess, and reigns unrivaled as his official mistress until dangerous intrigue threatens her position at court and in Louis's heart.
A riveting love story with a captivating mystery at its heart, Mistress of the Sun resurrects a fascinating female figure from the shadows of history, and illuminates both the power of true and perfect love and the rash actions we take to capture and tame it.

A pleasant surprise
A pleasant surprise - had trouble adjusting to narrator accent but once I did - the book is very involving-couldn't wait to finish it. Good, smart interpretation of one of Louis XIV mistresses. Good Story - worth listening to.

This is a wonderful tale, it carries you through the lifetime of a mistress at King Louis Court-I did not want it to end.

Great story! Can’t stand the narrator!
I love the story! Well written! The narrator is so annoying I’m not sure I will be able to finish listening! I may have to buy a paperback! Her modulation and cadence is just awful! Volume levels up and down!
Narrator ruined it for me
Not to be unkind, but the book needed a younger crisper narrator. Diana Leblamc sounded like a grandmother reading a bedtime story to children. At times she sounded like she needed a drink to clear up her throat. I almost didn't finish the book because of her, but I forced myself. What a pity......please cast your narrators with a better ear.
