Abundance

A Novel of Marie Antoinette
Audiobook

Marie Antoinette was a child of 14 when her mother, the Empress of Austria, arranged for her to leave her family, her country, and her home to become the wife of the 15-year-old Dauphin, the future King Louis XVI of France. Far from home and thrust into the role of woman, wife, and queen, Marie Antoinette lived a brief-but astonishing-life. Based on impeccable historical research, Abundance reveals a Marie Antoinette who rebelled against the formality and rigid protocol of the court; an outsider who became the target of a revolution that ultimately decided her fate. Naslund has created a portrait of a woman very different from the figure we think we know.
