[quote=""annis""]I'll put in Evelyn Anthony's 1975 novel "Anne of Austria"

<Set in 17th century France this story charts the life of Anne of Austia Queen of Louis 13th and mother of Louis 14th.
Anne's life with Louis 13th was not an easy one and their marrage was childless for many years. Later she had to battle for her son's rights in the civil wars known as the Fronde.
But the strength determination and perseverance of this clever woman shine through in this book.
Anne of Austia steps forward out of the shadow of the brilliant men with whom she shared the worlds stage, not least her son Louis 14th and her possible lover Cardinal Mazaran, as a passionate capable intelligent woman>.[/quote]

Thanks, Annis - always loved this book - but my copy is called The Cardinal & The Queen!

My test of a good novel is dreading to begin the last chapter. ~Thomas Helm
