I loved this book, even though it is absolutely tragic. The author does an excellent job at the end of depicting the misogyny of the times by contrasting the authorities' treatment of Marie Antionette and King Louis XVI - or is it just lingering scraps of respect for a king being demonstrated, when no such scraps existed for this "enemy alien" queen?
