From the author Kate Emerson for review
Secrets of the Tudor Court: By Royal DecreeThank you Kate for sending this beautiful book I can't wait to start this one.

A Royal Likeness By Christine Trent

Sumamry:As heiress to the famous Laurent Fashion Dolls business, Marguerite Ashby's future seems secure. But France still seethes with violence in the wake of the Revolution. And when Marguerite's husband is killed during a riot, the young widow travels to Edinburgh and becomes apprentice to her old friend, Marie Tussaud, who has established a wax exhibition. When Prime Minister William Pitt commissions a wax figure of Admiral Nelson, Marguerite becomes immersed in a dangerous adventure - and earns the admiration of two very different men. And as Britain battles to overthrow Napoleon, Marguerite will find her loyalties under fire from all sides. With a masterful eye for details, Christine Trent brings one of history's most fascinating eras to life in of a story of desire, ambition, treachery, and courage.
My Thoughts:
Christine has really done a beautiful job introducing the world of Madame Tussauds to me through this book. it had every thing from fascinating history about Wax works, fabulous historical characters and who could forget all those long sea voyages that Marguerite had to take.
I loved this book as much as I loved the Queen's doll maker. Marie Tussaud is such a fascianting woman I can't wait to find out more about her life.Thanks Christine for sending me this book to review.
