The Lacemaker and the Princess


Eleven-year-old Isabelle is a lacemaker in the town of Versailles. After a chance encounter with Queen Marie Antoinette as she makes a delivery to the palace, Isabelle finds herself appointed official companion to the queen's daughter and thrust into a world of luxury. But the year is 1789, and the city is rife with whispers of revolution. There are rumours of starvation in the countryside, and unrest is widespread. Soon Isabelle will have to choose sides. But whose side is she on? Either way, she will have to betray those she cares about most...Set amid the chaos of the French Revolution, this is a vivid portrait of life inside the palace of Versailles, and a touching tale of two friends divided by class.
