I hope to read this book as I certainly enjoyed the movie a few years back.

It is starting off well. I own up to knowing little about her other than the fallacious 'let them eat cake', and the losing of her head. I have been to Place du Concorde and versailles but every time I've wanted to read something edifying the Russians seem to call louder than the French.

Yes, I have read more about the Russians too than the French! I did read a Norah Lofts about Hortense which was very different and I may read it again. I forget the title at the moment.

This guillotine is surely creepy! But it doesn't look as bad as what little I read in Highroad to the Stake which was truly awful. I only read 2 or 3 chapters and quit.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I enjoyed this one, as I have enjoyed all of Frasier's books that I've read. Such a sad, sad ending.


Bettie☯ don't tell!

bwhahahahaha

Happy weekend to you and J


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Indeed it is! It is her birthday.


Bettie☯ The biggest horror of this sad tale is that she was denied her knitting and embroidery whilst she was in the tower. Pointless(sic) cruelty that ingratiated its way into a nightmare last night.
