Orange Trees of Versailles: A Novel
Annie Pietri (au); Catherine Temerson (tr)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
The story of 14-year-old Marion Dutilleul, a gardener’s daughter in the 1670s who is sent to become part of the domestic staff for French King Louis XIV’s mistress, the Marquise de Montespan. Marion has a talent for making perfumes and works with the fragrant orange trees at the royal estate of Versailles, where she gets caught up in the palace intrigue. “The sun was just rising as Marion placed a pretty crystal flask filled with a shimmering golden liquid on the console. She was happy. The perfume was ready. It was a unique, delightful fragrance, recalling a delicate, refined, blossoming bouquet. ‘Madame La Marquise will be pleased,’ she said softly.” Translated from the French.
