Waking Rose on Tea at Triannon


Mutual admiration society: Elena Maria Vidal who wrote the historical novels on the family of Marie Antoinette Trianon and Madame Royale has reviewed Waking Rose on her gracious blog, Tea at Trianon. If you haven't had a chance to read her novels, please do so!
I don't think I've ever posted about this, but I'm a fan of Marie Antoinette: I based my wedding dress on one that she herself designed (very similar to the one in this oil painting, incidentally!), and I consider her one of the most maligned figures in conventional history.

Thank you, Regina. I am looking forward to reading the other fairy-tale novels. "Waking Rose" was one of the most suspenseful and romantic stories I have read in a long time!!

Oooh, now, of course, we are all longing to see a photo of you in that dress, Regina! Please? :)

Does this mean that you made your own wedding dress?

I find this post rather interesting, as I recently read Trianon and loved it, and because before I'd read it I viewed Marie as a horrible person. I was trying to convince some friends of mine of her innoncence today at school, and so I found this little post very interesting. By the way, Regina, your dress was so beautiful!!! Thanks again for the wonderful books...
