To forge an incredibly powerful political alliance, thirteen-year-old Marie Antoinette of Austria is betrothed to Dauphin Louis Auguste, who will one day be the king of France. Opinionated and headstrong Marie Antoinette must find a way to fit in at the royal court, and get along with her fiance. The future of Austria and France falls upon her shoulders.

Through the pages of her diary, Marie captures the isolation, the lavish parties and gowns, her struggle to find her place,and the years leading up her ascendance of the throne . . . and a revolution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the young history lover I loved reading this book as a child, I was very interested in history and this was one of my favourites. It gives perspective on a individual who was hated for many ways in history, but was also young and unprepared for the world. A great book!
