Reviews of Mistress of the Revolution

Delors Mistress of the Revolution

My publisher tells me the paperback sales look very good, and I want to tell you about more reviews.

In chronological order, we have Heather at Raging Bibliomania: “a very gripping story. The narrative never lost its focus or drive, but
remained compelling and interesting throughout… I although the book was lengthy, It
didn’t feel too weighty or dense. I really enjoyed the multi-layered
character portrayals and thought that the book was written with a great
skill and a unique style. As a work of historical fiction, I thought it
an unqualified success.”

Also the Harriet Klausner review I mentioned earlier appeared in The Best Reviews.

And last but not least, Mistress of the Revolution is the weekly feature at The Historical Novel Review. And, after posting a great review (“fabulous debut novel”) Lisa interviewed my protagonist, Gabrielle de Montserrat. This was, by the way, Gabrielle’s first interview…

Many thanks to Heather, Harriet and Lisa!

    Congratulations on all your success’ it is truly a wonderful book which depicts a very tumultuous & confusing era & conveys it as an “easy read.” I guiltily admit that I originally selected the book because of my surname, but I was delighted to find my interests in it went far beyond that. I was completely engrossed & finished it in less than 2 days, with bags under my eyes to prove it. Looking forward to your next project!!!

    Catherine, I am sorry I did not think of this sooner but i want you to know my best freind Ira loved your book. so tell your publisher that demographics have probably changed if he could like a book about a country he knows so little about with so much violence, then your next book should be left in your more than capable hands.
    I look forward to Number 2.

    For the King

  7. Danielle says:

    Congrats on getting the paperback out! I read a library copy, but now that it is in paper I will have to pick one up for my own shelves to reread later. Any news on the new book?

  8. Christina says:

    Catherine, I just had to tell you how much I enjoyed Mistress of the Revolution. It passed my ultimate book test – do I want to read it again? Yes, I find myself picking it up again and again to immerse myself in Gabrielle’s world. She is such a wonderful character – often beaten by life, but never broken, always refusing to be defeated by her circumstances. I hope we will meet her again in another novel! :)

    And I agree with Penny that you showed us how difficult life was for a woman in those times. Life wasn’t all peaches and cream even for aristocrats, as Gabrielle’s story shows us.

    I am so happy that such a great book is getting the recognition it richly deserves. I know this is my second posting, I just had to say again, thank you for writing so smoothly without patronizing the reader as you explain the history and the violent era through the eyes of a young woman as she grows up. once again I plan on a large bookshelf of Madame Delors’ books. oh and autographs for ALL, no matter how many you write.

  15. Penny says:

    ma chere Catherine,
    I am not a bit surprised. you took us through the changes from ancien regime to revolution, you showed us the low status of women,which fit with with what was happening in the society but without talking down to us. I look forward to book 2.

  16. Judith says:
