I have found it – the second novel in the series Juliet Grey has written on the life of Marie Antoinette. (If you missed my review on Becoming Marie Antoinette, you can find it here). I look forward to reading her experiences from the beginning of her reign with Louis XVI. Yesterday I read the following words which may suggest one of the reasons for her behaviour while she was Queen:
“I am terrified of being bored,” I admitted during my lever the following day to Papillon de la Ferté. “And so I intend to banish the tedium. It is time that France’s queen is seen in public and sets the tone.” (p39, Days of Splendour, Days of Sorrow by Juliet Grey).
