Ann is editing her rough draft of a novel set in 16th century France. It focuses on King Francis the First and his last official mistress who did not want the job. She was forced into it by her scheming family, costing her everything. The main action takes place at Fontainebleau.
The image of Francis the First shown above is from a wall mural seen in Crèvecœur-le-Grand in the Oise department of northern France.
