It took me some time to go through the plot of this book.
The beginning was a little boring since Antoinette’s story was interlaced quite a lot with her mother’s letters. The plot flows more naturally after Marie Therese death.
Since I’ve already read Marie Antoinette: The Journey Antonia Fraser’s book, both stories are complementary in the sense that in Fraser’s story, Antoinette biography is ended by the Royal family escape to Varennes and in Naslund’s her prison and execution is described in details.
Another interesting point not mentioned in Fraser’s book is her relationship with Elisabeth Vigee Lebrun, a famous painter and portraitist who managed to escape to the fury of the French Revolution.
