Reviews

"A stunning breadth of period detail, offered in a fresh, contemporary voice."--Juliet Grey, author of the acclaimed Marie Antoinette trilogy
Praise for The Enemies of Versailles
Praise for The Sisters of Versailles

"Sally Christie's The Sisters of Versailles is an intriguing romp through Louis XV's France. Filled with lush backdrops, rich detail, and colorful characters, fans of historical fiction will enjoy this glimpse into the lost golden era of the French monarchy."--Allison Pataki, author of THE ACCIDENTAL EMPRESS
"A truly tantalizing read about one of the most scandalous eras in France's history, this trilogy finale will make you wish the series would never end."--Bustle
"Christie concludes her Mistresses of Versailles trilogy with a lushly detailed, beautifully painted portrait of Louis XV's last mistress, Madame Du Barry. The author's gift for developing characters and bringing them to full-blooded life is what turns her historical biographies into accessible, readable history."--RT Magazine
"Such an extraordinary tale makes for compelling reading and, as the lead book in a planned trilogy, will draw in readers who are interested in royal lives before the French Revolution.... Historical fiction fans, unfamiliar with the history of the Nesle sisters, will be intrigued."--Library Journal
"Tantalizing descriptions and cliff-hangers will leave the reader rapidly turning the pages in anticipation... A wickedly delightful read."--New York Daily News
