SYNOPSIS

A captivating novel of rich spectacle and royal scandal, Days of Splendor, Days of Sorrow spans fifteen years in the fateful reign of Marie Antoinette, France’s most legendary and notorious queen.

Paris, 1774. At the tender age of eighteen, Marie Antoinette ascends to the French throne alongside her husband, Louis XVI. But behind the extravagance of the young queen’s elaborate silk gowns and dizzyingly high coiffures, she harbors deeper fears for her future and that of the Bourbon dynasty.

From the early growing pains of marriage to the joy of conceiving a child, from her passion for Swedish military attachĂ© Axel von Fersen to the devastating Affair of the Diamond Necklace, Marie Antoinette tries to rise above the gossip and rivalries that encircle her. But as revolution blossoms in America, a much larger threat looms beyond the gilded gates of Versailles—one that could sweep away the French monarchy forever.

  12. Hi, Amy! Thanks so much for sharing this gorgeous book. I have always been fascinated by Marie Antoinette and read all I can about her. One has to feel sorry for her as she was thrown into this life at such an early age and such an innocent. She had to literally hang on by her teeth presenting the best front she could. So much political intrigue surrounded her and each time I read a book on her I learn even more.

    That cover is gorgeous. Sigh - I'm so looking forward to reading it.
