Series: Royal Diaries
This book is about a girl named Elisabeth who becomes the Empress of Austria and Hungary in the year 1853. She is chosen by the Emperor Franz Joseph to be his wife and this diary is about their beginning courtship and what life was like after she became one of the most powerful women in Europe.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about life in Europe in the late 1800’s and what it was like for royalty. It is an easy-to-read book, but the customs of European people in those days may need to be researched in order to understand their lifestyles.
