E years until she reaches adulthood I feel like it really lets the reader get to it really lets the reader get to the character and feel for the character in a way that some of the straightforward timelines don t If you don t mind a bit of craziness with your istorical fiction and aren t totally put off by stupid decision making you should read this book It s fun4 stars In this story we follow Claudette Laurent who loses everything in a fire and The Indoor Pirates has to starter life over we see Fisher Investments on Industrials her struggle to come intoer own in a time where it was uncommon for women to be successful in business and looked down upon by most people We Also Follow The Story Marie also follow the story of Marie a story that blends fact fiction This is an interesting book and though there are enjoyable parts I found a large part of it slow and dull it was predictable and some of it was stretched but the story captivated me enough to finish the book After losing Timelines of American Literature herome and family to a fire Claudette Laurent seeks work in London She makes a friend on the journey and the two are accepted as domestic servants in the Weggesperrt home of a social climber but Claudette wants to starter own business with the doll making skills learned from Het Achterhuis her late father As she works towardser dream France spirals into revolution and Claudette is torn between Valuation: Measuring and Managing the Value of Companies her past and the life she s made forerselfThe action scene at the beginning of the story was implausible to the point of sounding stupid One character The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes: A Hunger Games Novel had some sort of medical emergency only to be immediately trampled by aorse cart and then presumably swept away in a rampaging fire And following the fire Claudette asks around for Le Vilain petit atar her childhood sweetheart everywhere except the place it would make the most sense to seekim the shop where Adoniram Judson he s servingis apprenticeshipClaudette s spur of the moment decision to Числа head across the Channel is weakly supported but the story shows promise during and shortly after Claudette s journey Her life wither employer creates a good amount of sympathy though for some reason I kept mixing up Claudette with Is Your Networking Net Working? her new friend during this partThe doll making details are probably the best aspect of the book The craft is described in detail but I found those passages very interesting The characters were a bit transparent but I was entertained enough just watching them establish themselvesAs the book goes on it begins to follow the events back in France Instead of showing us France from the perspective of a lesser character we get this oddly detached often textbookish description of what isappening to Marie Antoinette I first noticed it during a The Revolutionary Paul Revere half chapter devoted to rehashing the affair of the diamond necklace The section was jarring throwing off the pace of Claudette s story which what I thought the novel was about But the later parts of the book often go into fictionalized descriptions of the French Revolution To those of us are already somewhat familiar with the time period this is very very boring I m certainly not opposed to reading fictionalized versions ofistory but it reads like the author was unwilling to choose between showing us Tainted Breeze: The Great Hanging at Gainesville, Texas, 1862 history through the eyes of the protagonist and telling us in frankly skim worthy fashion about everything else that was going onThe book also suffers fromaving far too many endings In addition to reading about the ultimate fates of the French royal family and the architects of the Revolution we get endless detail about the fates of nearly every character There are multiple weddings a funeral that was clumsily foreshadowed through the entire book and passages on the future of the doll business Characters who mistreated Claudette get their comeuppance and two different minor characters whose actions put Claudette in peril beg for forgiveness but face tragic ends To me one of these revelations cheapens the earlier drama because were led to believe that a character tried to MAKA MAKA Vol1 harm Claudette by faking evidence rather than uncovering an actual plotThe Kindle version of this was available free for a limited time I m glad I didn t pay for it Half the fiction I read isistorical fiction although I All About Light Rookie Read About Science have not yet read much on the French Revolution For the past year Iave promised myself to investigate into the Secrets Sequences (Secret Coders) history of Marie Antoinette purchasing the 2008 movie Marie Antoinette directed by Sofia Coppola which Iad not yet watched as well as Antonia Fraser s MTI version of Marie Antoinette The Journey which I Sanando El Alma Eterna - Perspectivas de Vidas Pasadas y Regresion Espiritual have not yet read Then I was given an opportunity to read The ueen s Dollmaker on offer from the author Christine Trent and I am so glad I acceptedThe ueen s Dollmaker is a very clever and fresh perspective of the French Revolution period set in both England and France The story follows in a series of vignettes of Claudette s life coinciding with the reign of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette Througher strong determination and And an unforgettable Crown of Cinder (Wings of Fury, heroine on the threshold of radical change this captivating novel propels readers into a beguiling world of opulence adventure and danger from the rough streets of eighteenth century London to France's lavish Palace of Versailles Winningly originalglittering with atmospheric detail Leslie Carroll author of Royal Affairs Uniue imaginativereplete with delightful details and astounding characters both real and imagined Donna Russo Morin author of The Courtier's Secr.
