Description

Marie Antoinette was fourteen when her mother, the Empress of Austria, arranged for her to leave her family, her country, and her home to become the wife of the fifteen-year-old Dauphin, the future King Louis XVI of France. Far from home and thrust into the role of woman, wife, and queen, Marie Antoinette lived a brief--but astonishing--life. Based on impeccable historical research, Abundance reveals a Marie Antoinette who rebelled against the formality and rigid protocol of the court--an outsider who became the target of a revolution that ultimately decided her fate. Naslund has created a portrait of a woman very different from the figure we think we know.

Review quote

"With vivid detail and exquisite narrative technique, Naslund exemplifies the best of historical fiction, finding the woman beneath the pose, a queen facing history as it rises up against her."
