Praise for Days of Splendor, Days of Sorrow "Charming....Juliet Grey creates an unforgettable tapestry of court intrigue, royal scandals, and dangerous romances all set against the spectacular background of Versailles. Grey spoils her readers with her deliciously descriptive details of eighteenth-century fashion." "It's a mixture of sober historical fiction and fluff that will appeal to many readers." --Seven Days "This engaging voice, coupled with vibrant descriptions of clothing, palaces, masques, and dinners, really thrusts the reader into the story...Exceptionally well done!" --Historical Novel Review "Grey has the gift of truly bringing Marie Antoinette to life. Many authors have written about the Queen of France, but no one has managed to give her such a voice as Grey. "This is a full and rich look at Marie Antoinette's life as queen....Grey really does offer the best portrayal of Marie Antoinette in historical fiction." --Pittsburgh Historical Fiction Examiner "Juliet Grey is an absolute master at bringing 1700's Versailles alive." --Book Drunkard "Tells a good story, using her imagination to fill in the gaps of the official history. Her story is filled with the pageantry of the times and provides a glimpse of a lavish and intrigue-filled period in history." --Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star "Grey's characterization of Marie Antoinette is complex, making her such a multi-layered and interesting woman." --Amoxcalli "Juliet Grey does a wonderful job of crafting the world of this much maligned queen. " --Bippity Boppity Book

"I enjoyed the exceptionally detailed look at Marie's life as Queen of France." --The Eclectic Reader

"Grey has put a great deal of research into this book as you can feel the tension, love, and sorrow as if you were there." --The History Nerd

"Every little detail in this book is delectable, and I savoured it thoroughly. Written in good taste, nothing is amiss, and everything is possible." --Enchanted by Josephine
