This book was written in the 1960's by a lady fortunate to have the opportunities to travel and see the localities and read the original source papers. She had the access and the professional background to write an interesting biography. Instead she wrote a story based on the facts, and seems to have written it for a target audience of grade school children. I haven't finished the book yet. Got to about chapter 3 and put it down. I may pick it up later, but it's not on my 'must do' list.

Format: Hardcover
Well written biography of Marie-Therese, only child of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI who survived into adulthood. Alice Curtis Desmond does a nice job describing Marie-Therese's childhood at Versailles and her subsequent imprisonment during the French Revolution. She then details the next 50 years of her life, as she constantly moves all around Europe, never quite settling in one place. Fascinating!

This book is very well written and strong on facts. Mrs. Desmond is obviously an accomplished American writer. I say American because every possible American character that touches on the main story is dragged in. If you are American you will love it. I am not and felt that some of the other characters suffered as a result. In particular, Marie Therese's time in Jelgava (she spells it Yelgava, which is incorrect) is given short shrift. This is a formative time in Marie Therese's life and deserves more detail. Perhaps such details are unavailable. On the whole a good book to read in bed.
