Flaunting, Extravagant Queen by Jean Plaidy
Book DescriptionAt the age of fifteen, Marie Antoinette, beautiful and charming bride to the impotent Dauphin, is plunged into the intrigue of Versailles. Frivolous and reckless, she flouts the strict and demanding etiquette of the glittering court, and discovers the true nature of love, hate and jealousy. But the clouds of revolution are overhead, and Marie Antoinette, who only wishes to enjoy life, learns too late that the price of her enjoyment is very high...'One of our best historical novelists brings to life wayward, capricious Marie Antoinette' - "News Chronicle". '"Flaunting Extravagant Queen" has the colour, liveliness, and sensitivity with which one has come to associate this author's historical novels' - "Scotsman".
