Madame Tussaud Review

464 pages
The world knows Madame Tussaud as a wax artist extraordinaire…but who was this woman and how did she become one of the most famous sculptresses of all time? In these pages, her tumultuous story comes to life as only Michelle Moran could tell it. The year is 1788, and a revolution is about to begin… 

Michelle Moran always writes great historical fiction novels and this one is no exception. I love how Madame Tussaud is shown to be very involved in the French Revolution. You really get an in depth view of what the French Revolution may have been like amongst the common people. The anger and misunderstandings that are expressed within Madame Tussaud's circle make the emotions of that time period come alive. I really enjoyed reading this book and seeing how Madame Tussaud survived this reign of terror. This was an excellent and enjoyable historcial fiction and I recommend it for fans of such.
