Editorial Reviews

Review

"Fast-paced...a satisfying view of the Revolution from the perspective of the Third Estate." ―historicalnovelsociety.org

"Meghan Masterson does a brilliant job of bringing to life many of the cataclysmic events of those years...The Wardrobe Mistress is perfect for anyone who is intrigued by the French Revolution and wants a fast-paced and romantic tale set during its tumultuous era." ― Kate Forsyth, Booktopia Review

"In this debut novel by Meghan Masterson, the characters practically leap off the page, taking you by the hand through the streets of revolutionary Paris and the glittering halls of Marie Antoinette's Versailles. I particularly loved the character of young Giselle Aubry. A highly entertaining read! Not to be missed!"―Michelle Moran, internationally bestselling author of Nefertiti and Madame Tussaud

"An entertaining read in the best tradition of the historical novel...THE WARDROBE MISTRESS is intriguing and well researched, set during one of my favourite periods of history, the French Revolution. We see the Reign of Terror through the eyes of Giselle, an engaging young ‘undertirewoman’ or wardrobe mistress, who finds herself torn between her affection and compassion for the Queen and her loyalty to her class and family."―Roberta Rich, internationally bestselling author of The Midwife of Venice

"Revolutionary fervor, royal politics, and high fashion are stitched together like a couture ballgown in Meghan Masterson's THE WARDROBE MISTRESS...Giselle makes a smart, likable heroine, torn between her affection for the queen and her growing love for a firebrand suitor, and the revolution's relentless advance toward the guillotine made for breathless reading. A charming debut!" ―Kate Quinn, author of The Empress of Rome Saga and The Borgia Chronicles

"In THE WARDROBE MISTRESS, Masterson deftly captures the tumult of the French Revolution and the tragic unmaking of history’s most infamous queen―Marie Antoinette―through the eyes of clever and likable dressmaker Giselle Aubry...I grew impatient to return to the book each night. By turns sexy, absorbing, and suspenseful, this story sweeps you along to its riveting conclusion."―Heather Webb, author of Becoming Josephine and Last Christmas in Paris

"A charming portrait of Marie Antoinette’s inner circle and the intimate connections between politics and fashion." ―Jennifer Laam, author of The Secret Daughter of the Tsar

"Silk isn’t the only thing whispering through the halls of the royal palaces in Meghan Masterson's captivating debut...THE WARDROBE MISTRESS is a romantic, tension-filled coming of age story set in a time of dangerous and uncertain revolution. You will root for Giselle; you will applaud her; and you will also fear for her." ―Sophie Perinot, author of Médici's Daughter

About the Author

Meghan Masterson graduated from the University of Calgary with an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Communications Studies, and has worked several unrelated jobs while writing on the side. As a child, she gave her parents a flowery story about horses every year for Christmas. She is now mainly interested in writing historical fiction. She is drawn to strong historical figures and unique situations in history, which present unexpected opportunities and dilemmas for her characters. Meghan's other interests include reading at all hours (even at breakfast), cooking, and going for walks with her dog. She and her husband live in Calgary.

Meghan's debut novel, The Wardrobe Mistress, about one of Marie Antoinette's wardrobe women who casually spies on the queen during the French Revolution, torn between her love for Marie Antoinette, her involvement with a dashing young patriot, and the growing unrest in Paris, will be published in June 2017.
