About the Book

From the author of the acclaimed and beloved Josephine B. Trilogy comes an enchanting historical novel that captures the drama, elegance and treachery of the court of Louis XIV of France. Louise de la Vallière, the brave and spirited child of minor nobility and an extraordinary horsewoman, falls in love with a wild stallion and uses ancient magic to tame him. This act shadows Louise throughout her life as she enters the court of the Sun King, where she captures—and then tragically loses—the King’s heart. Mistress of the Sun is addictive and alive. Sandra Gulland has filled this engaging narrative with glorious, meticulously researched detail, including notes on everything from courtly manners to Louis XIV’s favourite confection. Based on a true story of love and resounding with mystery, here is a novel that rewards readers with an irresistible glimpse into another time and another life.
