Miss Mitford has reconstructed the course of Louis' love affairs, culminating in the secret marriage to Madame de Maintenon. In episodes such as the Affair of the Poisons, the Creation of the School for Girls at Saint-Cry, Lord Portland's Embassy and the Marriage of the Duchess of Bourgone, she portrays all the principal characters of the time so that we feel we know them as human beings.
