This was a great book!
It provided a good overview of the life of Louis & M.A. and the events of the French Revolution without getting bogged down into a dry and boring litany of names and dates - Deborah Cadbury kept it interesting the entire way through. (Highly probable this is because I had an abridged version)
Up until now, all I knew about the history of the French Revolution ended with the execution of Marie Antoinette and the instauration of the French Republican Calendar. I knew nothing about her children and their fate.
Poor little Louis died in such miserable circumstances your heart just breaks for the innocent child – the mystery of whether or not he secretly survived was a fascinating one and I am glad I read a book that provided a definitive scientific answer to that question.
Such a cruel tragic story, my heart breaks! I highly recommend this book to anyone.
