KIRKUS REVIEW

The Lost Dauphin has long been the subject of conjecture and romantic imaginings, and here is a thrilling and absorbingly interesting story of the facts -- as nearly as they are known -- told in vivid modern style. The first half is perhaps the more interesting, recapturing those tumultuous days as they would strike an impressionable child. Detailed account of life at Versailles and the Tuileries, and the sharp contrast of the hardships at the Temple Tower. After the death of Marie Antoinette the story becomes involved with the numerous substitutions and the succession of Pretenders. Good popular romanticized history. Should be easy rental, and fairly healthy sales, to women readers primarily.
