490 1  The mistresses of Versailles trilogy ;|v1 
520    "A sumptuous and sensual tale of power, romance, family, 
       and betrayal centered around four sisters and one King. 
       Carefully researched and ornately detailed, The Sisters of
       Versailles is the first book in an exciting new historical
       fiction trilogy about King Louis XV, France's most "well-
       beloved" monarch, and the women who shared his heart and 
       his bed. Goodness, but sisters are a thing to fear. Set 
       against the lavish backdrop of the French Court in the 
       early years of the 18th century, The Sisters of Versailles
       is the extraordinary tale of the five Nesle sisters--
       Louise, Pauline, Diane, Hortense, and Marie-Anne--four of 
       whom became mistresses to King Louis XV. Their scandalous 
       story is stranger than fiction but true in every shocking,
       amusing, and heartbreaking detail. Court intriguers are 
       beginning to sense that young King Louis XV, after seven 
       years of marriage, is tiring of his Polish wife. The race 
       is on to find a mistress for the royal bed as various 
       factions put their best foot--and women--forward. The 
       King's scheming ministers push Louise, the eldest of the 
       aristocratic Nesle sisters, into the arms of the King. 
       Over the following decade, the four sisters--sweet, nai;ve
       Louise; ambitious Pauline; complacent Diane, and cunning 
       Marie Anne--will conspire, betray, suffer, and triumph in 
       a desperate fight for both love and power. In the 
       tradition of The Other Boleyn Girl, The Sisters of 
       Versailles is a clever, intelligent, and absorbing novel 
       that historical fiction fans will devour. Based on 
       meticulous research on a group of women never before 
       written about in English, Sally Christie's stunning debut 
       is a complex exploration of power and sisterhood--of the 
       admiration, competition, and even hatred that can coexist 
       within a family when the stakes are high enough"--
