Dear Librarians,

Meet one of history's most famous mistresses — Jeanne de Poisson, the Marquise de Pompadour. As a child, a fortune teller told her she would become the lover of a king and the most powerful woman in France. Eventually luck and a little scheming do pave her way to Versailles, and into the arms of King Louis XV.

For two turbulent decades she fights off the many rivals for her position and helps the king give himself over to a life of luxury and depravity. Around them, war rages, discontent grows, and France inches ever closer to the Revolution.
