Publisher's Summary

To this day Marie Antoinette remains one of history’s most misunderstood heroines. How she triumphed over the petty jealousies and backstairs rivalries of the court, how she sustained a good-hearted but malleable king, and how she was transformed from French queen to Austrian “whore,” is the story told with skill and fascinating detail.

wonderfully written and read!

Loved this story, especially Ms Porters narration. I've always believed Marie Antoinette was a very misunderstood historical figure.

Excellent!!! Best nonfiction, reads like a historical fiction

I normally hate biographies. They're usually dry and not exciting. But this book couldn't be further from that. The author is telling Marie Antoinettes story in an exciting, you can really feel it, sort of way. And Davina Porter is fantastic. Her voice is so soothing but at the same time it doesn't put you to sleep. LOVED IT!!!
