    1. The Just-About-Average Ms M says:

      I am updating my original review here with the longer and more detailed review I published on . That review cost me when folks who absolutely, madly, positively adored this book took out their displeasure with my opinion in a particularly nasty manner. I am no longer worried about thatTE: I originally posted this review two years ago, where it received a 50/50 split between helpful and not helpful votes. Normally I wouldn’t care what sort of votes or comments any of my reviews attracted since [...]

      Fan fiction, and bad fan fiction at that. The most common mistake early fan fiction writers made was the creation of a "Mary Sue". In prehistoric Star Trek fan fic, the Mary Sue was usually the female ensign that was brilliant, reserved and beautiful only to the special few who could see past her reserve. This might be Kirk, once Ensign Mary Sue had saved them from attacking Romulans. As fan fic expanded, the Mary Sue included both fangirls and fanboys.Why write fan fic? A lot of reasons, but at [...]

      The public square separated from God is a place where all hell breaks lose - literally. The feudal system was destined for the trash heap, that is a given, but was devotion to God and all the associated virtues derived from that devotion, to be dispatched as well? Well the French Revolution demonstrates the evil that results from man's separation, coerced initially, then physically forced , from God's laws and commandments. It has been repeated time and again, starting with the fall of man and p [...]

      A wonderful read and a different and challenging take on Louis and Marie Antoinette.

    5. Dawn M Rock says:

      Simply a must read. I have read it many times. Finally the truth about The Martyr Queen.

    6. Kristin says:

      A less than valiant attempt by the author to raise some compassion for Marie Antoinette. Without a dog in the fight, I was ready to be swayed and brought to my knees in anger at the relentless, unfair treatment of the royal family during la Revolution! Sadly- Vidal offered no tangible evidence that dissuade the notion that Antoinette was entirely disconnected from the trials of the poor or to support the fact that she was completely innocent of the claims laid against her by multiple historians. [...]

    7. Bill Ecoff says:

      The dialogue seemed a bit contrived to me, and I think it would have benefited from a simpler writing style, but Elena Vidal's brilliant interpretation of Marie-Antoinette's life more than makes up for any literary faults with its honest and beautiful depiction of famous (and some not-so-famous) historical personalities and its white-knuckled faithfulness to actual events. I did find her take on Louis XVI to be a bit too sympathetic in my opinion, though. This book felt like a drink of water com [...]

    8. Theresa says:

      A very good story of Marie Antoinette and the French Revolution. It cuts through a lot of the myths that surround her, and the French Revolution. My only warning is that the story isn't seen through the eyes of the same person for more than one chapter, and it is not in chronological order. So the material in the story is extremely good, but it could have perhaps been written better style wise.

    9. Bee says:

      Wow! As a child in public school in the US, I never thought to question what I was taught. I believed my history lessons about the French revolution to be true. As a grown Catholic, I have been finding that a lot of the history books have been very skewed. For a more balanced view of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, please read this book!

    10. Liza says:

      I like the book. Its very spiritual and shows the softer or, let me rephrase that, the spiritual side of the royals. I still have a long way but once i finish reading the book, will write a conclusion to my review. So far, so good.

    11. Michele says:

      beautiful and heart-wrenching

    12. Amanda says:

      Beautifully and sympathetically told, covering the viewpoints of multiple characters. Highly recommended.

    13. Susan says:

      Interesting book. It definetely gives a different perspective of Marie-Antoinette.

    14. Winter Sophia Rose says:

      Emotional, Fascinating, Enlightening & Compassionate! A Brilliant Read!
