Julienne learns her sewing skills from her grandmother and joins the staff of an established seamstress, where she accepts commissions from Queen Marie-Antoinette and marriage to a young officer who fought in LaFayette’s army in American. When her husband loses his life to the mob, Julienne flees to Azilum in eastern Pennsylvania, where the refugee royalists are attempting to preserve their old life in a primitive setting. Rich in detail…this first novel is well written and entirely believable…Highly recommended”
