Ward of the Sun King
by Mildred Allen Butler
Adrienne is happy to become a ward of King Louis XIV of France and attend the school for girls established by his wife. But when the school’s rules change, she flees with the help of her cousin Pierre and hides in the palace of Versailles, disguised as a page boy, until the two escape--only to be accidentally separated. Not knowing if he is alive, she soon must make a decision about her future.
