Abundance by Sena Jeter Naslund: Naslund traces the life of Marie Antoinette from her "birth as a citizen of France" at age 14 to her execution, told from her own point of view. The novel provides a wealth of detail as Toinette savors life at Versailles, indulges in hair and clothing rituals, gets acquainted with the French court, and experiences motherhood and loss. The outcome is known, but the account is riveting.

Baudouin, Pierre Antoine - The Honest Model - 1769. I love the way Baudouin, a pupil of Boucher, is not afraid to expose the slightly seedy underside of 18th Century Parisian life, don't you? He's the darker, less romantic version of Boucher. ~Leah Marie Brown
