Reviews

"Excellent...a pleasure to read throughout." --The Wall Street Journal"Highly readable....with vivid wit, Fraser demonstrates that within the edifice of the monarchy there were deep crannies of ordinary affection." --The New Yorker"Entertaining and instructive....we must still be grateful to Antonia Fraser for devising so excellent a companion with which to lie back and think of France." --The New York Times"Engaging...the sumptuously illustrated Love and Louis XIV focuses on the diverse array of women who 'lit up the court of the Sun King.'" --The Washington Post
