This fortnight's chosen book for Historical Tapestry's ABC in Historical Fiction Challenge, I've chosen:
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this book. The French Mistress, is the story of CharlesII and his mistress, Louise de Keroualle. Something about this French lady who kept herself pure and tantalizing for her one-and-only, the King of England...
I love everything about the 17th c -especially Charles II and the Sun King, so this novel based in both France and England, was way more than it promised. The historical detail, the writing, the setting, the historical figures with their richly entwined lives - everything is positively exquisite. It's a splendid read that kept me glued to the very end. It's no wonder that Susan Holloway Scott is one of my very favourite authors. I strongly recommend it.
