"Versailles, 1686. Julie d'Aubigny, a striking young girl taught to fence and fight in the court of the Sun King, is taken as mistress by the King's Master of Horse. Tempestuous, swashbuckling, and volatile, within two years she has run away with her fencing master, fallen in love with a nun, and is hiding from the authorities, sentenced to be burnt at the stake. Within another year, she has become a beloved star at the famed Paris Opera. Her lovers include some of Europe's most powerful men and France's most beautiful women. Yet Julie is destined to die alone in a convent at the age of 33"--Amazon.com

Fascinating subject, disappointing mode/style/voice. Contemporary voice and casual, vernacular style do not serve the historical subject well .
