Historical Fiction • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

Presented as a novel, this story of Marie Antoinette provides believable insight into what it might have been like for the Royal Family during the French Revolution. Erickson is an acclaimed biographer, and Maggi-Meg Reed superbly reads the account as Marie Antoinette might have read it to her grandchildren, had she survived. Between the author and the performer, the listener is drawn into the queen's innermost thoughts so that we feel her joys, her fears, and her sufferings while she struggles to maintain her regal disposition. Were this diary real and a part of French history, perhaps Marie Antoinette's legacy might have been considerably different.
