Virginie Says…

This book is on the top of my wishlist – mostly because it is set in Versailles and I love Versailles.  (one day I might even actually travel


To Dance with Kings by Rosalind Laker

From the Publisher

On a May morning in 1664, in the small village of Versailles, as hundreds of young aristocrats are coming to pay court to King Louis XIV, a peasant fan-maker gives birth to her first and only child, Marguerite.  Determined to give her daughter a better life than the one she herself has lived, the young mother vows to break the newborn’s bonds of poverty and ensure that she fulfills her destiny-to dance with kings. Purely by chance, a drunken nobleman witnesses the birth and makes a reckless promise to return for Marguerite in seventeen years.  With those fateful words, events are set into motion that will span three monarchies, affecting the lives of four generations of women.
