It took a quick minute to get into the book and that is not the fault of the author. The French Revolution is just not one of my favorite time periods to study and I walk away with disgust every time I do. Good does not triumph over evil, there are no heroes and there is no happy ending. It is also necessary reading because it could easily happen all over again and in many countries has to an extent.

The jump from one woman to the next threw me off, however, considering the time line it is actually quite perfect. I didn’t find it “too technical” because following that line is watching the Terror unfold with the shallowness of patriotism and the prostitution of Liberty. None of the women were portrayed as Saints, thankfully, and this makes them more accessable.
