The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette by Carolly Erickson – 4 Star Review!

download (3).jpgStory Rating: ****
Cover Rating: A

I’ve been fond of fiction novels written like diaries since a young girl, and so this one automatically caught my eye. Written directly through the eyes of Marie Antoinette, this book offers a unique view of her life and the world around her. The author really delves into all those things that history faults the Queen for, and realistically gets behind the motivations for those things. I enjoyed that the diary started from when the Queen was a young woman of thirteen, so as to provide a solid backstory as a foundation to what occurs all the way through until Marie Antoinette awaits death by guillotine. The story was so realistic, in fact, I had to double check once finished that it was, indeed, a work of fiction.

The cover is eye-catching and offers readers a solid idea of what to expect within the book’s pages.
