Kate Williams's six best books

Kate Williams is a British novelist and historian. One of her six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
MARIE ANTOINETTE by Antonia Fraser

A brilliant exploration of a tragic queen, of queenship and the French Revolution.

Antonia sets the gold standard for biographers in everything but she’s particularly good at showing the faults. I like writing about women and queens are fascinating because as women they are seen as secondary but they’re royal so are put above a lot of people.
Read about another entry on the list.
