"Marie Antoinette was a child of fourteen when her mother, the Empress of Austria, arranged for her to leave her family and her country to become the wife of the fifteen-year-old Dauphin, the future King of France. Coming of age in the most public of arenas--eager to be a good wife and strong queen--she warmly embraces her adopted nation and its citizens. She shows her new husband nothing but love and encouragement, though he repeatedly fails to consummate their marriage and in so doing is unable to give what she and the people of France desire most: a child and an heir to the throne. Deeply disappointed and isolated in her own intimate circle, and apart from the social life of the court, she allows herself to remain ignorant of the country's growing economic and political crises, even as poor harvests, bitter winters, war debts, and poverty precipitate rebellion and revenge. The young queen, once beloved by the common folk, becomes a target of scorn, cruelty, and hatred as she, the court's nobles, and the rest of the royal family are caught up in the nightmarish violence of a murderous time called "the Terror." With penetrating insight and with wondrous narrative skill, Sena Jeter Naslund offers an intimate, fresh, heartbreaking, and dramatic reimagining of this truly compelling woman that goes far beyond popular myth--and she makes a bygone time of tumultuous change as real to us as the one we are living in now."--Publisher's website

It's midnight on St. James Court, at the heart of which is a beautiful fountain sculpture of Venus rising from the sea. Kathryn Callaghan has just finished the first draft of her novel about renowned painter Élisabeth Vigée-Le Brun, a survivor of the French Revolution who was hated for her sympathetic portraits of Marie Antoinette. Although the manuscript is complete, its author remains haunted by Élisabeth's experiences, which are revealed in Sena Jeter Naslund's ingenious novel-within-a-novel interleaved with the chronicle of a day in the life of Kathryn Callaghan. Despite being separated by time, place, and culture, Kathryn and Élisabeth possess similar gifts and burdens: uncompromising aesthetic codes, fierce pride in their artistic expression, and unwavering love and sacrifice for their children. And before the next midnight rolls around, Kathryn will have confronted personal danger as frightening as the butchery that Élisabeth faced during the Reign of Terror. Each woman will be called upon and tested; each will, like Venus, rise triumphantly above the expectations of her world

Los aires en la Europa de 1770 aún son tranquilos para la nobleza. Con apenas catorce años, María Antonieta deja su tierra y su familia para convertirse en la futura emperatriz de Francia. A pesar de su lógico nerviosismo y sus dudas, sus nuevos súbditos la reciben con afecto e ilusión y ella se adapta poco a poco a su nueva realidad. Pero una pena inmensa invade su corazón: los años pasan y su esposo, el futuro Luis XVI, evita la consumación del matrimonio. Luego, la muerte de su madre, sumada a la crueldad de las intrigas cortesanas, va alejando a la joven de sus buenas intenciones iniciales. Poco a poco la joven reina comienza a aislarse de los crecientes problemas sociales, lo que no la favorece para nada a los ojos de sus súbditos, y menos aún cuando las cosechas se pierden, el invierno recrudece y las deudas y el hambre incitan el deseo de venganza y rebelión. Toda la nobleza francesa se ve cada vez más atrapada por el espíritu revolucionario de una época que luego culminaría en el oscuro período llamado "el Terror". María Antonieta se convierte en objeto de odio y resentimiento para aquellos que alguna vez la quisieron. Y su vida, como la de todos aquellos nobles que no pudieron ver los nuevos caminos del pueblo, tendrá un implacable final.--Desde la descripción de la editorial
