I have some ideas, Dear!
Madame the Princesse de Lamballe has memoirs, you may want to read those. They are available on amazon. com. I can not, however, find books about Madame de Polignac! Too bad X(

These are the memoirs of Madame Du Hausset, lady's maid to Madame de Pompadour, and of the Princesse de Lamballe: http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/3883

Please look at this thread for more information about Polignac: http://www.marie-antoinette.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=245
