Engaging and entirely believable.,
This review is from: The Secret Diary of a Princess: a novel of Marie Antoinette (Kindle Edition)
What does it feel like to grow up in a royal palace, to be forever aware that so much is expected of you, to be married at 14 years old to a boy prince, potential King of France, whom you've never even met? Melanie Cleggs book answers these questions and so many more by creating in her Marie Antionette a solid, engaging and entirely believeble character. The book takes the form of a diary written by Marie Antionette herself and is a skillful blend of historical fact, warm and lively characterisation and vividly sensual descriptions of the colours, tastes and fashions of the Hapsburg court. Having finished the book, I miss her like an absent friend!
