Review:

"Jean Plaidy doesn't just write the history, she makes it come alive." (Julia Moffat, RNA)

"Her novels are still very much to be enjoyed ... Any writer who can both educate and thrill a reader of any age deserves to be remembered and find new fans ... One only has to look at the TV/Media to see that the appetite for this kind of writing is still very much there" (Matt Bates WH Smith Travel)

"These books are page-turners; they offer a wonderful way to learn about history, their heroines are smart, strong and in control of their destinies and their stories will remain with you for ever...They are a celebration of women's spirit throughout history." ( Daily Express)

"Full-blooded, dramatic, exciting" ( Observer)

"Outstanding" ( Vanity Fair)

Book Description:

The first of Jean Plaidy's flamboyant French Revolution series
