Post Rosalie LAmorlière, dernière servante de Marie-Antoinette
Rosalie LAmorlière, dernière servante de Marie-Antoinette is a new novel by Ludovic Miserole. I received an email from the author alerting me to the publication, the novel is based on 9 years of archival research and for those of you who read French it may be of interest.

Actually did I read somewhere that her memoirs were ghosted by someone who could read and write? What a treasure trove that book would be.

I have met the young author who gave a talk on the book to the "Marie Antoinette association" in Paris, It should be an interesting read. I will give you a summary of it once I have had a chance to procure it. Rosalie's daughter is buried in the Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris, - there is a mention on the tomb of her mother's rôle in bringing some comfort to the Queen in her last weeks.

That is a very kind offer Baron, so I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the novel. It sounds promising considering the research and association of the author.

Me too! I would be very interesting in knowng something more about Rosalie (well, no need to say :D ). Unluckily I can't speak French, although I can understand some written French; so, if any of you knew about an English translation or could tell me something about the book, I would be grateful!

As this is a very limited release for a specialized readership, unfortunately it won't be translated into English. I must get hold of this book.
