Product Description

Product Description

On 10th August 1901, two English women walked into the past.

During a visit to the Palace of Versailles, on the anniversary of the French Revolution, two ordinary women saw the French Queen, Marie Antoinette, sitting in the gardens in front of them, along with nobles, gardeners, houses, bridges and stones that when they went back, were no longer there.

Backed up by a decade of research, the two women decided to publish their extraordinary adventure in 1910. Their timeslip experience has become known as the Ghosts of the Petit Trianon.

Did these two Edwardian women actually experience time travel, or did they see the ghosts of things that had been?

Previously, out of print, this is a new edition, edited and translated for the modern age, with additional material that looks at subsequent timeslip type experiences at Versailles.

More About the Author

Tony Walker used to believe that writing was all talent, and now he's learned that it's mostly craft. He is trying to write ghost stories, fantasy stories and science fiction. He reads pretty much anything - a big fan of Neil Gaiman, Lawrence Durrell, Luis Borges, Italo Calvino and a youth spent immersed in Moorcock, Heinlein, Tolkien, Roger Zelazny, Tim Powers, et al.

I had heard of this before but had not been able to read about it in detail. This book details the accounts of both women exactly & analyses them interestingly & accurately. Fascinating book which I couldn't put down.
