Book #12  
Title: Mistress of the Sun
Author: Sandra Gulland
Genre: Historical fiction
# of pages: 352
My rating of the book, F- [worst] to A [best]: A-

Description of the book: A novel of Louise de la Vallière, mistress of the Sun King. As a girl, she won the trust of the wildest of horses; as a woman, she would win the love of the most charismatic of kings.

Review: Thought that the book was really good. The reason that I say this is that not only where the descriptions wonderful, but the author had a way of keeping the reader interested in the material to the point where I had a couple of nights where I could have lost track of time, had it not been for ESPN Radio blaring next to me as I read the book. If you are looking for something that will keep you entertained for a few days, highly recommend it. Also if you happen to like historical fiction and anything surrounding the court of the Sun King.
