A beautiful debut about Giselle, one of Marie Antoinette’s wardrobe women, who casually spies during the French Revolution torn between her loyalty to the queen and growing unrest in the country. It’s Giselle Aubry’s first time at court in Versailles. At sixteen, she is one of Marie Antoinette’s newest wardrobe ladies in awe of the glamorous queen and her opulent palace life. A budding designer, it’s a dream come true to work with the beautiful fabrics and jewels. Every few weeks she returns home to visit her family in Paris where rumors of revolution are growing. From her position in the royal household, Giselle is poised to see both sides of the tensions erupting throughout Paris. When her uncle, a retired member of the secret spy ring that worked for King Louis XV, suggests that she casually report on the Queen as a game, she leaps at the chance. Spying seems like an adventure and an exciting way to privately support the ideals taking the countryside and Léon Gauvain, the handsome watchmaker who courts her, by storm. But as the revolution continues to gain momentum, and Giselle grows closer to the Queen, one of her few trusted servants, she finds herself dangerously torn. Violence is escalating. She must choose where her true loyalty lies, or risk losing everything … maybe even her head. The Wardrobe Mistress is Meghan Masterson’s fascinating and visceral debut, not to be missed.

A beautiful debut about Giselle, one of Marie Antoinette’s wardrobe women, who casually spies during the French Revolution torn between her loyalty to the queen and growing unrest in the country.

It’s Giselle Aubry’s first time at court in Versailles. At sixteen, she is one of Marie Antoinette’s newest wardrobe ladies in awe of the glamorous queen and her opulent palace life.

From her position in the royal household, Giselle is poised to see both sides of the tensions erupting throughout Paris. When her uncle, a retired member of the secret spy ring that worked for King Louis XV, suggests that she casually report on the Queen as a game, she leaps at the chance. Spying seems like an adventure and an exciting way to privately support the ideals taking the countryside and Léon Gauvain, the handsome watchmaker who courts her, by storm.

But as the revolution continues to gain momentum, and Giselle grows closer to the Queen, one of her few trusted servants, she finds herself dangerously torn. Violence is escalating. She must choose where her true loyalty lies, or risk losing everything … maybe even her head.

The Wardrobe Mistress is Meghan Masterson’s fascinating and visceral debut, not to be missed.
