bookshelves: historical, mediocre-writing

This is an interesting look at the French Revolution with lots of good historical details. Isabelle is an interesting and convincing character, and Marie-Therese, Madame Royale, is presented well, mostly clicking with other things I've read about her.

My one thing with this book is that it sometimes uses odd anachronisms, such as Isabelle's revolutionary brother, George, saying "okay." This is a ridiculous thing to be irritated about and even to mention - but it takes away from the historical flow of the novel.

This is a book that taught me something about the French Revolution and the royal family. Though I don't think I'll read it again, I enjoyed it.
