The Sisters of Versailles: The Other Boleyn Girl(s) of France

6 Aug

Great historical fiction set in France during the reign of King Louis XV about the five Mailly-Nesle sisters – four of whom were his mistresses. Each sister tells her own story, so the voice varies by chapter, which was very nicely done. Hearing each one’s particular thought process was much more like showing than telling – great way to get insight into their different personalities. Wonderful depictions of a time and place that we (in the US, anyway) don’t know that much about.
Really well written and very interesting – highly recommend especially for fans of historical fiction.
