A Novel of the French RevolutionBook - 2011
In the fourth novel from Michelle Moran, we depart from the ancient world and enter the gilded but troubled court of Marie Antoinette and the intriguing story of Marie Tussaud, a woman who survived the French Revolution only by creating death masks of the beheaded aristocracy. While many authors have written on the French Revolution, none has approached the Reign of Terror from Marie Tussaud's point of view and Marie was there to witness it all.
