|Plot Summary of To The Scaffold: The Life of Marie Antoinette|
|"This very readable biography covers the entirety of Queen Marie Antoinette's life, from her childhood as one of the thirteen children of Maria Theresa, to her loveless marriage to Louis XVI. This is a more sympathetic portrayal of the queen than many, claiming her faults lied more in the realms of naivete and lavish spending than in insensitivity or treason."
