Reviews - What do customers think about The Private Life of Marie Antoinette?
An eyewitness account Feb 8, 2008
Campan gives the general reader and historians alike an eyewitness, description of events at this doomed court. It is well worth noting that such fine works such as Lady Antonia Fraser's MARIE ANTOINETTE: THE JOURNEY and MARIE ANTOINETTE, LAST QUEEN OF FRANCE by Evelyne Lever and Catherine Temerson (as well as many, many others) cite Madame Campan dozens of times throughout.
We're pleased to see that Madame Campan's memoir has attracted readers. It's a wonderful book and we are proud to be the publishers. Campan wrote her book shortly after the death of Marie Antoinette. It was among the first, if not the first, accounts of the young Queen's life. This book gives the reader a chance to experience the court first-hand for themselves.

I really enjoyed reading this book after seeing the current movie out about Marie.
