Read full description of the books My Story: Marie Antoinette:This book was wonderful! I read an article about Marie Antoinette, in an Smithsonian, or other historical magazine about a year ago, but mainly heard about Marie through people talking to me about.
The book is an account of Antonia- Marie Antoinette before her marriage to Louis XVI - up until a year after her marriage. Obviously, the book is based on her diary, if she had one.
I thought Marie was simply a selfish, shallow, riches and jewels based woman, before I read the book. Now it's very clear that, although her mother had her take lessons in history, French, riding, and the "basics of ruling a kingdom," Antonia was very much a peace maker, listener, wanting to please everyone, but not at all savvy when it comes to governing, and not exactly quick to catch the politics going on.
She seems like a strong-willed personality, as well as possibly defiant.
Overall, it was an excellent read. The history is woven in wonderfully with the "real person" aspect of Antonia/ Marie Antoinette.
I highly suggest it.
