Just when life seemed its darkest, Samantha found happiness—Pascal, and his 10-year-old son, and the rigors of country life—in an unexpected trip to France When Samantha Brick's life started to unravel—her company in liquidation, homeless, penniless, and friendless, and on max-strength anti-depressants—it seemed that everything was going wrong. But a chance week away in France led to the most unexpected of all turn-arounds: a whirlwind romance with gun-toting, stubborn, and ever-so-macho Pascal. It wasn't until she moved in to his cottage in the beautiful Lot region in southwest France that she realized how shamefully ill-equipped she was for the country life. Like Cinderella in reverse, Samantha had to learn to cook, clean, chop wood, and keep house, as well as discovering how to be a stepmother to Pascal's know-it-all 10-year-old son, and finding love and happiness along the way.

This book is the first sustained study of a corpus of writings by women art critics active in nineteenth-century France that have all but “vanished” from the historical record. Written by scholars in art history and in literature, the essays employ a variety of interdisciplinary approaches and methodologies to study the women’s reception of specific artworks and aesthetic movements in the nineteenth century, the intersections of aesthetics and politics in their essays, and their rhetorical strategies and literary styles.

“The Indomitable Marie-Antoinette” is an valuable contribution to our understanding of the significant role women have always played in history. It is one of a series of six biographies of the queens, regents and royal mistresses of the French monarchy. In it, the highly acclaimed Simone Bertiere re-reads the innumerable source materials about Marie-Antoinette, and in a most engaging style, paints a startlingly new portrait of the queen. With great psychological insight, she brings Marie-Antoinette and her circle back to life not as representatives of their class, but as flesh-and-blood human beings in positions of extraordinary power and privilege, facing profound changes in the world they could not understand but were supposed to lead. Why “indomitable”? Because however frivolous her tastes may have been, the fierce determination she showed in getting what she wanted was only matched by her resistance to anything she didn’t. She willfully carved out a private life for herself in the face of opposition from a most rigid and hierarchical court. And despite being ill prepared for it, she would in the end play a key political role in the French Revolution, incurring the hatred of the masses rising up against the crumbling monarchy.
