This is an excellent book that dispells some myths and takes you back to a wonderful and terrible time in history. It helps you understand the French Revolution and a misunderstood and maligned monarch. Some historical novels rewrite history, this wonderful author tells it like it is. This book is a must read!

I am a high school sophomore who had to do an english research project on Marie Antoinette. I thought that this book was quite informative while not making one want to fall asleep. I found that this book was written in a style more as if it were a novel than a history  book. This captivated me and made me eager to keep reading this great book. This book had interesting information not only on Marie  but also on the revolution, culture, and society around her.  This book helped me understand why there were certain fashion trends and  why the revolution really started. These tidbits always related back to Marie and made it easy to understand the side of her character that is not downgraded. Marie Antoinette's life plus Carolly Ericksons' writing, create a beautiful story.I used the infromation given to easily answer questions that I had for my  english project. I recommend this book if you are looking for something to give you true, entertaining  information. I found it an easy way to learn about Marie Antoinette and the French Revolution. Thanks to this book I now have great  knowledge of this time in european history at this time. I greatly enjoyed this book, and hope that many in the future will use it as  a reference to the life of one of the most powerful, greatest queens of France.
