And it was much better for Marie-Antoinette, who loved children, but who did not wish in to be girded too early when she was young Queen :D

I don't know Olivier Bernier ? Never heard about him. What is the title of his book ? Can you tell me more, please ? I just fell upon an old book : "Marie-Antoinette et Axel Fersen", by Emile Bauman. :roll: I prepare for an happy time ! :lol:

Yes. The book is "Secrets of Marie Antoinette" (it is said to be a collection of her letters to and from her mother). I have not yet read it.

You read French no doubt, and have the upper hand :cry:

Avoid Erickson. I don't know about Haslip - she is usually pretty good.

I skimmed the Erickson and have to say I agree with you. Thank you.

You are welcome!!! It draws a great deal from Madame de la Tour du Pin's memoirs which can be interesting, but then she draws conclusions about the queen which don't fit with the portrait she had been building.

I barely remember it actually...although that happens to me at times. like I know I read half of Vincient Cronin's "Louis and Antoinette" but I don't remember exactly what different info I got from it. I never got to finish it unfortunately someone else at the library put it on hold and I hadn't finished it :(
