Historical Fiction • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

In this fictional biography of Marie Antoinette, written as a diary, we learn of the life and loves of the last queen of France. Erickson, who has also written nonfiction about Marie Antoinette, depicts the turbulent time of the French Revolution through the eyes of privilege. Carrington MacDuffie reads the diary entries with energy and enthusiasm. MacDuffie gives an unaccented voice to Marie Antoinette, Louis XVI, and most of the other French characters and discernible accents to the rest. From Antoinette's loveless marriage at age 14 to her love affair with Swedish Axel Ferson and her captivity during the Revolution, Erickson shows that Marie Antoinette was a real woman, no matter how infamous.
