I keep trying to write the post on the account of Marie-Amélie of Naples, Queen of the French from 1830-1848, by her great-granddaughter, Princess Henriette of Belgium, Duchess of Vendome, but in vain. There always seems to be too much background to explain, and it all becomes too long.Yet, it does not break up naturally into a "Part I," "Part II," etc. So frustrating! I found the books so moving and thought-provoking, and Amélie and Henriette both appear to have been such beautiful souls. I really want to discuss this topic at greater length, but, for some reason, it is proving very difficult.
