Post The Lost King of France - Deborah Cadbury
Has anyone read this book about Louis XVII, it has been out for a few years now. I have just started reading it and the first few chapters are summing up the lives of Louis and Antoinette, and I am finding it a bit of a re-hash of Fraser's bio. Does it become more interesting?

“Love is the emblem of eternity: it confounds all notion of time: effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.”
- Germaine de Staël

I do not know if I have ever cried so hard reading a book. It does become more interesting, to me. And it is heart-breaking! Keep a box of tissues near by.
Another good look into the life of Louis XVII would be - Marie Antoinette and her Son. This one is a novel, but is quite good any way.
