Grace Elliot was a real person. A Scotswoman, she was one of the most famous courtesans in pre-Revolutionary France, so it is through her eyes that we see the lead up to the French Revolution, the Revolution itself and the aftermath.

Like all books from this series, there is a focus on the gross and disgusting facts, like the fact that the French rarely bathed and used perfume to cover up the smell and powdered their hair to soak up the grease. There are also illustrations to accompany the text.

Aimed at the lower reader, this is a great resource for younger students studying the French Revolution.
