Enjoyed this book very much As my only opinion of Madame du Barry has been from Hollywood movies she never comes to be anything but a despised woman She was born in undesirable circumstances and did what she had to do to survive and then achieved a position that was envied and hated by many She was always kind to those in need and to those she called friends Through this book I certainly have a different opinion of her Easy reading and uick too
