The Hidden Diary of Marie AntoninetteThe Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette by Carolly Erickson

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

First of all, this a fiction book, nothing to do with Marie Antoinette’s biography.

Secondly, the story is based on the assumption that Marie Antoinette’s had written a diary telling her whole life, from her youth in Austria until her execution by the guillotine.

Since the true story of this historical character is being very well described in the literature, this book doesn’t bring any new fact among the already known destiny of Marie Antoinette, her husband, Louis XVI and their children.

I’ve read better books on this subject like Marie Antoinette: the journey by Antonia Fraser and Pintora de la Reina, La Fovorita de Maria Antoineta by Geneviève Chauvel.
