Fall is here and it is the perfect season for tea, scones and reading! I have another new book to add to your fall reading list.
My (spoiler free *wink*) review of Confessions of Maire Antoinette: a novel by Juliette Grey is now available on Austenprose.com. This book is the third in a series of three, but I have only read this one - and had no trouble at all falling right into the story.
Here is a snippet from my post:
A particularly strong scene is the storming of the Tuileries Palace. A mob of citizens breaks into the palace seeking out the king and queen. Without time to join each other or come up with a plan, Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette are each forced to face the mob on their own. They are caught in separate rooms with only their courage to pull them through. With a table separating mother and children from the mob, Grey describes this frightening scene beautifully, full of emotion and descriptive detail.
