This book opened my eyes once again to something I knew nothing about in history as well as introduce me to some historical figures I had heard of but knew little: the French Revolution, Marie Grosholtz Tussaud, Mary Antoinette, Louis XIV, Lafayette, and Thomas Jefferson (and his role in the revolution). It was disturbing to read about and yet I realized this same thing is still going on today in countries. So sad.

The thing that bothered me about this book was how it was all written in present tense. I don't know how *I* would have done it but after about a 1/3 of the way through, it really got me at times. LOL

I recommend this book although I didn't like it as well as Moran's book, Cleopatra's Daughter.
