I was so excited to get this book in my hot little hands! I loved Moran’s previous book, Cleopatra’s Daughter by Michelle Moran, in fact I gave it a five star review. So, did this book hold up to another 5 star rating? Not quite, in my humble opinion. Did I really like it? Yes!

The writing was excellent as was the story. However, for me, there were a couple parts that dragged on just a little too much. I understand that the French Revolution cannot be rushed but I wish a couple of the scenes would have been cut. That said, that is my only issue with the book.
The characters were well written and established. I especially loved the teacher/ student relationship between Marie and Princesse Élisabeth and the descriptions of how Marie created the wax images of people. Fascinating!
