Publisher's Summary

Set against the magnificent decadence of the 17th century court of the Sun King, Mistress of the Sunbegins when eccentric young Louise falls in love with a wild white stallion and uses ancient magic to tame him. This one desperate action of her youth shadows her throughout her life, changing it in ways she could never imagine. 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.
