Sandra Gulland has another historical masterpiece

While leading a very interesting life, Sandra Gulland was always writing.  She had a great interest in Josephine Bonaparte and started writing a fictional biography that in the end resulted in a trio of books about Napoleon’s remarkable wife.   The three titles in the trilogy: The Many Lives & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B., Tales of Passion, Tales of Woe and The Last Great Dance on Earth.  These books have sold over a million copies worldwide so she has many ardent fans. 

Her latest relase, Mistress of the Sun, takes place in the 17th Century France at the court of Louis XIV, the Sun King. The focus of the story is Louise de la Vallière, the Sun King’s mistress.  This book was published by Harper Collins in Canada on February 23, 2008, and immediately went onto the bestseller list and it is now available in the U.S. for our enjoyment. 

If you like history and appreciate in depth research and top that with strong women, Mistress of the Sun is a great read.  As the Josephine B. series did not start out as a trilogy, we will have to wait and see if there is more to tell about Louise to come. 

To find out more about Sandra, her books and her upcoming Canadian appearances check out her website,  http://www.sandragulland.com/index.html.  We are sorry we did not know about her US tour sooner as it just finished up.
