Madame Tussaud
Madame Tussaud A Novel of the French Revolution By Moran, Michelle eBook - 2011

It was pretty surreal to read about Marie Grosholtz's life while enjoying perfect beach weather at Tybee Island. Moran does a good job of portraying the horrors of the French Revolution from 1788 through 1794. I walked away from the novel thinking of Marie's salon and wax works as the "social media" of her day. From begging Marie Antoinette's dressmaker to grant her an audience to visiting the coffee shops to gather the latest "who's in, who's out" news to her final stand against the revolutionaries, Marie (the future Madame Tussaud) has a front row seat on French history.
