This is an engrossing tale about a woman who has become a byword for tourist attraction but was so much in her own lifetime This novel sheds a clear light on an amazing person and a turbulent timeTold in first person and present tense the book reads like a friend is telling you moment by moment about living through civil war and anarchy Much closer to the main players than I had ever expected to learn Marie Grosholtz her maiden name relates how so many visitors to her family s salon became major figures in the French Revolution and how calls for bread became calls for bloodWe forget what life was like before television but it seems that wax exhibits filled that function Marie and her family would create new tableaux on a weekly sometimes daily basis to show the scenes and the people who made the news or perhaps the tabloids For most Parisians a fifteen sou admittance fee brought them as close as they could come to the ueen and her bedchamber or to the makers and shakers of public life For Marie designing these scenes was a political dance to depict one person could mean offending another possibly one who would rouse the mobHer bittersweet romance with Henri Charles is not allowed to overwhelm the political issues Marie was a very modern woman in some respects Her relationship with Henri and later Francois Tussaud and always with money make her understandable to us if perhaps a bit odd in her own timeThe author has done some amazing research and has translated it into a highly readable account it isn t necessary that we understand every political current of the time and she doesn t overstuff the tale although an infodump in chapter 3 worried me it was an isolated instanceWe see what Marie sees and know what a citizen would be able to find out although this citizen is surely closer to the power struggle than most If I have any complaint it is that the narrator reports than she emotes though she must step back from some events to stay sane The ending is a bit rushed surely Henri had a few pointed uestions by then but this is after the Revolution has passed and the Revolution could be said to be the most important character of allI was fortunate to get this book through the Goodreads first reader program I would rate it 45 for its merits but in a whole number system I am happy to round up
