Abundance by Sena Jeter Naslund

Another fictionalized biography, Abundance tells the story of Marie Antoinette from Marie's perspective. Naslund makes the life of this Queen accessible and contemporary by focusing solely on the life of one girl growing up far from home and struggling to fulfill the whishes of those around her. Missing from the story line are the politics of France during the revolution. Instead, you're given minute detail into the part Marie Antoinette played in history. This book was hard to put down once picked up.
